The Dollanger family was a very happy and firm family. Father, mother, one daughter (Cathy), one son (Chris) and a twins (Carry and Cory).

After a while they want fresh air from outside, especially Carrie and Cory. In the evening their mother visits them and she looks very bad. Mother asks them how they have spent the day and the twins start complaining and yelling that they want to leave the room. They yell so hard...
