The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas is the story of the title city and its inhabitants. Omelas is a utopia, bright and perpetually peaceful, plentiful, and happy. Its bounty is sustained, though, by the relegation of a single hapless and faultless child in grueling poverty and squalor. All citizens are told of this fact when they come of age, and the majority are able to reconcile their lives to it. Some, though, abandon the city and walk out into the unknown.
