The entire story takes place within the "Happy-life Home" of George and Lydia and their children Wendy and Peter.  This story takes place in the future, and the Happy-life Home is an electronically-controlled house that fullfils every need of the people who live in it.  Part of the house, the nursery, works by telepathy, creating an environment that the people in the room most desire.  This area of the house becomes the focal point of action, but the whole of the story unfolds within the house in various rooms.
