In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, an authoritative central point that is surrounded by twelve outlying districts.
Panem possesses a crude and cruel environment and manages to keep its districts in line by forcing them all to send one girl and one boy between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death live on TV.
16-year-old Katniss Everdeen is forced to represent her district and sees it as a death sentence, before realising that she is a natural fighter and a contender in the Games. But if she is to be victorious, she will have to make a painful choice between humanity and survival, and between love and life.
