Young adult action drama hoping for franchise success, set in a future dystopia where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities. Tris (Shailene Woodley) is the strong-willed heroine of the story, the possible beacon of hope who might be able to unite the people and cause a revolution. When the time comes for her to find out what her personality type is so she can be assigned to a faction, she finds out that she does not fit into one category, a state known as 'divergent'. She is told that this is a dangerous thing to be, and tries to keep her outsider status a secret. Meanwhile, she joins the daredevil Dauntless troupe, whose distinguishing characteristics are their bravery and risk-taking behaviour.
