Divergent (2014) Storyline
Divergent the movie is story about a girl named Beatrice who is looking for her place in the new system of governance as human civilization coped with their differences after world war III. The devastated war prone area was separated from the developing civilization by a huge wall to avoid any bad reflections of the war. The Leaders in order to avoid any future wars and in order to maintain peace came up with the concept of Factions which were divided into five parts based on human virtues mainly selfless (Abnegation), Truthful and smart (Erudite),Peaceful (Amity),Honest (Candor) and fearless (Dauntless). Each of these groups served the society like the Abnegations helped the poor and even the Factionless who fit in none of the categories, Erudite spoke the truth and provided their views, Amity and Candor kept the factions alive and lively with goods and products, while the Dauntless acted as soldiers to protect the factions. Beatrice always admired the fearless Dauntless but also was smart and selfless when it came to saving someone, so she was confused as to where she belonged in the group of factions.
Families every year had to send their kids as they turned 18 to find out as to which group of faction did they belong, Beatrice along with his brother who supposedly seemed like a Abnegation took the test to determine their groups and something very rare was found in Beatrice results as she was sedated and tested with induced hallucinations where a rare type called the divergent was found in her which was a combination of Dauntless, Erudite and Abnegation. The tester apparently had a divergent brother who was killed by the Factions as the Factions fear the divergent for their unpredictable thinking especially they feared the free thinking. Both parents of Beatrice are government workers and support their leader but very recently the Erudite suspect that the Abnegations are hiding the divergent as a result both Beatrice and her brother were also in their indirect list of attacks. On the day of ceremony of induction into various groups, Beatrice and her brother meet Jeanine the leader of the Erudite and somehow their decision gets influenced by her words as she gave in truthful advice to them. While her brother chose Erudite, Beatrice chose Dauntless and that’s when all the fun started for Beatrice as she was now one of the Dauntless.
Adventure for the innocent looking Beatrice starts off from catching high speed trains to jumping out of them and then having courage to jump into broken buildings not knowing what’s inside and then getting a new name Tris as every faction after getting induced into various groups can’t go back to their families and have to give up what they used to be. The Training for becoming a Dauntless goes from awesome to worse as start to see various aspects of what it means to be a dauntless as they are pit against extreme situations both physically and mentally. They actually have to live together in a single pit with open bathrooms, fight with each other with bare fists and most of all show no mercy, however they had cool parts too like getting a tattoo, jumping from trains and target practice drills.
Tris is not physically strong and so she struggles on the leaderboard where the only top ranked students can join various ranks in Dauntless and the ones who fail to rank up are tagged as the factionless. Meanwhile Tris meets their instructor Four who happens to be one of the elite Dauntless leaders and although being exceptionally talented said no to the post of becoming the leader twice. Four and Tris slowly develop feelings for themselves as Four gets impressed by Beatrice tenacity to never give up as she climbs herself back from the lower ranks. Meanwhile Eric the leader of Dauntless is absolutely spineless and shows no mercy and especially for Tris who doesn’t fear him. Apparently Eric tries to get Tris out of the Dauntless but Tris manages to comeback with a high point scoring drill which they win because of Tris, as a result Tris is now one of the Dauntless as she manages to barely rank up the margin.
