Set in the future, George and Lydia live in a "Happy Life Home," a technological marvel that takes care of their every need and provides a "nursery" for the children, a room where anything they imagine comes to life. But when the only thing the children imagine is an African Veldt filled with murderous lions, George calls a psychologist to investigate. The children do not approve.

Mr. Summers (Male):the man who conducts the lottery. The childless owner of a coal company, he is one of the village leaders.
