The year is 2081 in America. George and Hazel Bergeron have a son named Harrison, he is all too perfect for the world they are living in, so he got taken away by the government because now there are many more rules in place.
Hazel starts thinking about what it would be like if she was the Handicapper General, she thinks about the sounds she would play, but she wouldn't want the handicapper to be a thing if that was an option.
Harrison busts on to the stage and acts as a free man, as an emperor, and he takes the ballerinas hand and they dance in way nobody has seen before. Then the Handicapper General walks in and shoots Harrison.
Harrison's parents see the whole thing happen but leave soon after to go get something to drink. There family thing is "Forget sad things".
Harrison's parents have already forgot about what happened and they keep reminding themselves to "Forget sad things" as they head off to sleep.
