Storyboard Text

  • In a perfect world, everyone is equal in every aspect. Or at least this is true in the world of Harrison Bergeron.
  • George and Hazel Bergeron, however, are forced to live in ignorance either because of their own lack of intelligence or physical and mental handicaps that the government forces them to wear.
  • Their own son is jailed for attempts to overthrow the government and for being too powerful, i.e. not equal to the rest of the citizens.
  • They even have to watch as their son is shot and killed for being more smart and athletic than others and trying to use that fact to the best of his abilities.
  • The saddest part however, is the fact that after a couple of minutes, the incident is completely wiped from their memories because of the short attention spans everyone has or are given.
  • Equal traits and features are not the same as equal rights. That amount of sameness within a community leads to a uniform society without individuality. Confusing equality and sameness can truly lead to dire consequences.
