(PCM) Based on the best selling book series by Veronica Roth, Divergent takes place in a world where every citizen must take a test that determines their place in society, and for those whose test results are inconclusive, society is a dangerous place.
Divergent is a thrilling action-adventure film set in a world where people are divided into five distinct factions based on human virtues; Abnegation (selflessness), Amity (peacefulness), Candor (honesty), Dauntless (bravery), and Erudite (intelligence).
When it comes time for Beatrice ‘Tris’ Prior to take the test her results are inconclusive, marking her as Divergent meaning she will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy by a faction leader to destroy all Divergents, Tris must learn to trust in the mysterious Four.
Together they must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it’s too late.
