Don't force your kids into sports. I never was. To this day, my dad has never asked me to go play golf. I ask him. It's the child's desire to play that matters, not the parent's desire to have the child play. Fun. Keep it fun.

Synopsis:
The story is a satire of two 1950s-era trends, consumerism and increasing Cold War anxiety.

The story takes place in 1971 and revolves around Mike Foster, the adolescent son of an "anti-P," a man who refuses to buy a bomb shelter or financially support nuclear war preparations for his town.

Mike lives in fear that he will not have access to a shelter when the war begins and is a social outcast because of his father's political positions.
