The Hunger Games saga is first and foremost 3 books, signed Suzanne Collins, subsequently adapted for the cinema. The pitch? On the ruins of former North America, 12 districts were built, led with an iron fist by the Capitol, the capital of this nation now called Panem. Each year, the Capitol organizes Hunger Games: a real sanction against the rebellious population but also a strategy of intimidation on the part of the government. A major televised event followed by all of Panem and literally "Games of Hunger", the Hunger Games oblige each of the twelve districts to send a boy and a girl, "Tributes", to face each other until death. The sole survivor being declared the winner. The story traces the adventures of Katniss Everdeen, a 16-year-old girl who will show courage and daring to try to survive the Hunger Games.
