The Hunger Games are an annual televised event where the Capitol chooses a boy and a girl from each district to fight to the death.

As punishment for a previous rebellion against the Capitol, every year one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 from each district are selected and forced to participate in The Hunger Games.
The Hunger Games is a televised event where the participants must fight to the death until only one remains.

Also participating is Peeta Mellark, a boy whom Katniss knows from school and who once saved her life by giving her bread when her family was starving. Katniss and Peeta are taken to the Capitol, where they meet other tributes and are publicly displayed to the Capitol audience. During this time, Peeta reveals on-air his long-time unrequited love for Katniss. Katniss believes this to be a ploy to gain audience support for the Games, which can be crucial for survival, as audience members are permitted to send gifts to favored tributes during the Games...
