Slide 1 - The Hunger Games
Slide 2 - In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.
- Sixteen-year old Katniss Everdeen regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister’s place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to death before-and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
