Divergent

Synopsis: Set in a futuristic dystopia where society is divided into five factions that each represent a different virtue, teenagers have to decide if they want to stay in their faction or switch to another - for the rest of their lives. Tris Prior makes a choice that surprises everyone. Then Tris and her fellow faction-members have to live through a highly competitive initiation process to live out the choice they have made. They must undergo extreme physical and intense psychological tests, that transform them all. But Tris has a secret that she is Divergent, which means she doesn't fit into any one group. If anyone knew, it would mean a certain death. As she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly peaceful society, this secret might help her save the people she loves... or it might destroy her.

(WOMAN ON PA SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY)

TORI:
What is it with you

Abnegation and mirrors?

We reject vanity.

Yeah. I know. Sit down.

I'm Tori. I'll be

administering your test.

You'll be offered a

series of choices

to test your aptitude

for each faction

until you get one result.

I wouldn't sweat it.

95% get the faction

of their origin,

and from the looks of you...

What is it?

Bottoms up.

(SIGHS)

Choose.

Now. Before it's too late.

- Why? What will I do with them?

- Choose.

Just tell me.

Puppy!

(GASPS)

Get up.

We're going out the back door

before a supervisor comes.

- But what was my result?

- Come on!

What happened?

You're going to tell your family

that the serum made you sick

- and that I sent you home. All right?

- No, but what was my result?

Abnegation.

And Erudite. And Dauntless.

Dauntless...

Your results were inconclusive.

That's impossible.

It doesn't make any sense.

No. Not impossible. It's

just extremely rare.

They call it "Divergent."

You can't tell anyone about

this. Not even your parents.

As far as the world is concerned,

you received an Abnegation result because

that is what I manually entered.

So what am I supposed to do

at the choosing ceremony?

I was supposed to learn what to do.

This was supposed to tell me what

faction to choose, the test.

- We're supposed to trust the test.

- The test didn't work on you.

You have to trust yourself.

(MAN COUGHING)

(DOOR CLOSES)

What happened to you today?
