Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the state of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send one boy and one girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part of bizarre spectacle, partly intimidating ploy of the Government, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which "Tributes" must fight with one another for survival. Opposite to well-trained Tributes who have prepared for the Hunger Games for life, Katniss is forced to rely on his instincts brilliant as well as on the training of a previous winner of the games, the alcoholic Haymitch Abernathy. In order to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that will balance survival against humanity and life against love.
