Charlie Bucket lives with his father, mother, and four bedridden grandparents in the same city as Willie Wonka’s magnificent chocolate factory. The family is so poor that they eat mostly cabbage.

When Mr. Wonka announces that he has hidden five golden tickets for five lucky children to tour his factory, Charlie can hardly believe it and longs to be one of the five.
