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.
