The Hunger Games 2012
In the fictional Panem, two children from each of the 12 districts surrounding the Capital must enter The Hunger Games. The Games are a fight to the death, set in a large outdoor arena fraught with wild beasts and unnatural elements and all the contestants, of course.The Games, were told, are a reminder to the people of the districts of the consequences of disobedience. The Games began after the districts rebelled against the Capital, and are a tool by which the people are oppressed. Each district works at manufacturing or at collecting resources, all of which goes towards allowing the Capital to live it up.
