Adapted from the stage play by Mike Walker, based on Ray Bradbury's classic story.


A playroom with special powers draws two children into secret deadly adventures.
Two parents buy a nursery which simulates different environments for their children to play in. It comes alive - a startling premonition, from pre-computer days, of multimedia technology. The parents become concerned when the children keep returning to an African veldt scene and start feeding the lions, even though there are supposed to be no lions in the program.
