Beatrice "Tris" Prior (Shailene Woodley) chooses to leave her former life in Abnegation for Dauntless and meets her new instructor Four (Theo James) who discovers that she is special. Tris has the ability to recognize her fear and conquer it, which is dangerous for the government. People with this ability are called divergent, and Tris is warned not to reveal her secret to anyone.
