The villagers gather in their town square in order to carry out the tradition of the lottery
IT WASN'T FAIR!!!
The conflict in the story is surrounding the tradition of the lottery, where one unlucky resident of the town is randomly selected to be executed. The story follows the family and character that are affected by this tradition. (That is a poorly made black box)
The Hutchinson family was selected for a final drawing to decide the member of the family that will be stoned
Tessie Hutchinson is selected from the final drawing and is prepared to be stoned to death. Tessie protested before and after her personal selection.
The villagers join together to execute Tessie Hutchinson as she continues to protest by saying the selection was unfair and that her husband did not have sufficient time to choose a folded slip.
The lottery is concluded, leaving the reader with mixed thoughts. The story took a sharp turn very quickly. The beginning lead the reader to think that the lottery was treated as a modern lottery involving money. However, the author gives hints to indicate that winning the lottery was not good.
