Bradbury's short story "All Summer in a Day" is set on the planet Venus, where it rains constantly and the sun only shines for a brief period of time every seven years. At the beginning of the story, an elementary class full of children, who have grown up on the planet Venus and have never seen the sun, anxiously wait for the rain to stop. They are "ready" to finally experience sunlight for the first time as it shines on their gloomy, rainy planet later in the day. They are also excited to finally be able to leave their underground classroom to play outside for the first time. The only student that remembers what the sun looks and feels like is a quiet, sensitive girl named Margot, who is slightly older than her classmates and grew up in Ohio before traveling to Venus with her parents. Unfortunately, the elementary students resent Margot for her experience and knowledge regarding the sun and end up locking her in a closet while they enjoy the warm sunlight. Tragically, Margot does not get to experience the sunlight, which she desperately desires to see and feel.
