Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The Hunger Games," a fight to the death on live TV. Katniss Everdeen is forced to represent her district in the Games and only one thing is constant . . . kill or be killed.
