A projection into the future of current pandemic realities, Super Supermarket envisions a world in which no one leaves their home, in which simply walking down the street can get you reported to authorities, and in which everything past the front door begins to provoke reactions of fear and anxiety. Cloistered in their homes, a new generation of children is growing up with no knowledge of the outside world or basic niceties – like wearing pants!
One day our protagonist is reading a picture book to her nephew, only to discover it contains forbidden depictions of playgrounds and supermarkets – things that no child should know about! Her hysterical complaints to customer service are resolved with a free gift of two tickets to the Super Supermarket Experience, an elite in-store shopping simulation intended to alleviate the rampant cabin fever of the near future. However, the tickets only serve to awaken our protagonist's long-suppressed retail desires, leading her down a spiral of temptation that can only end in disaster!
She has a strong temper and is impatient. She lives with her boyfriend and her nephew, but she doesn't do much for her child's education.
Sweet and shy, he takes things as they come, and he is not very observant.
A not very smart kid who never leaves the house.
