The Hadley family owns a smart house. Robots and machines do virtually all house tasks, and the family members are left to enjoy their time. The two children can create a virtual scene from their imagination in the nursery. They choose a realistic scene from the African veldt, and the parents can smell the lion’s latest victim’s blood when they enter the room. The parents are so worried that they call a psychologist. David McClean, the psychologist, advises them to become more self-sufficient, move to the country, and turn the house off. Peter and Wendy resist that idea, and they convince their parents to leave them in the nursery for the last time. They lock their parents there, sending them to become victims of the pride of lions into their imagined virtual reality.
