Ugh, Luke, always receiving the special treatment from Mother and Father.
How sad I am, sitting here for the entirety of my life...
Ssshh! Be quiet! Do you want them to hear our son? Do you want them to take him away?
...with the threat of the Population Police always lurking around the door...
Luke, I'm bringing dinner to you right now, stay tight!
Luke! In. Now. They're coming!
Luke, the third child of the the Garners, a family of farmers, sits on the stairs of the main room. He is not allowed to go outside, near the windows, or anywhere where he can see another human.
One day, some workers come over with chainsaws and axes. They were hired by the Government to take down the Garners' woods. The woods were Luke's only source of protection, other than the house itself.
