Long ago,

before the founders established

this great city of ours

that word was all but meaningless,

an ideal as elusive as a dream.

Now, 200 years later

We are all of us living proof

that peace is indeed attainable.

The reason for this is of

course are faction system.

Erudite, Dauntless,

Amity, Candor, Abnegation

In dividing people according

to personality and attitude

we've created a society in which

each faction plays a critical role

in maintaining the social order.

But this harmony we achieved

is now under attack from

a small but extremely dangerous

group of individuals

We call them "Divergents".

They are in essence the worst

of what humanity used to be

rebellious, defiant, and uncontrollable.

Five days ago, a rogue

group of divergents

posing as Dauntless brutely

invaded Abnegation

in an obvious attempt

to cripple the faction

system by attacking it's

most vulnerable members.

These divergents despise our system because

they are incapable of conforming to it.

These latest rumours for example that I was

somehow behind the attack on abnegation

is nothing more that divergent propaganda

I have devoted myself to bringing

these fugitives to justice.

I've exercised my right as acting

council leader to declare martial law

until im confident that any threat

to our security has been eliminated.

Tell Jeanine we got it.

We are all that's left of humanity.

The vast wall that encloses this city

may protect us from our toxic surroundings,

but it is up to us to confront any element

that can poison us from within.

Because when you are civilizations last hope

peace is not merely an ideal

its an obligation.

And it is up to all us to take a stand position against it's one true enemy.


I N S U R G E N Amity!

We should make sure it's clear.


Help us, help us, please!

Please help us, you have to help us!

I'm sorry, you have to leave.

- You just don't belong here.

- Its all her fault.

You killed Will.


She killed ...


You've killed us all.

And...Three! Higher!

Higher, higher!

-Are you alright?

Okay everyone back to you classroom

I just wanted to do something different.


Well that's definitely different.

- You dont like it?

- No, i like it, i like it alot

I'm just surprised, that's all.

-What's going on, Tris?

-Nothing. I'm fine.


Still having nightmares?


We're good.

You and me. I know nothing

else is, but we are.

Time for chores.

How much longer do we

have to stay here, Four?

Until we know it's

safe to leave.




You can't ignore me forever.

I know you're thinking about your next

move, but there are things you don't know.

Marcus, please just leave us alone.

Your mother didn't come back to

abnegation just to save you.

She died trying to hide

something from Jeanine

that something entrusted

to Abnegation

-long time ago.

-Marcus! Stop!

Whatever you want from us,

you're not gonna get it.

I'm not the enemy here.

You found it...

It was in the home of Natalie

and Andrew Prior, like you said.

Want to tell me what's inside?

A message from the founders that will ensure

the future of people who deserve it.

Divergents will destroy our society,

unless we destroy them.

And now we can.

However, only a divergent can open this box.

Find them!

Every last one of them.

Go with happiness.

Go with happiness

-You with happiness.

-Thank you.

Go with happiness.

I really don't know how much longer I

can do this whole peace and love thing.

It's the amity way, just try to blend in.

I'm trying to blend in,

and its just not working.

-Coming through, on you right.

Hey here we go.

Look a rainbow. It's pretty.

Pathological offendiness along without

questioning passivity. I love this place.

Thank you. Go with happiness.

Oops, Excuse me.

-Hey tris, I really like your hair by the way.

Did you try to cut it all short and weird...

Hey Peter, why don't you take your food and sit down huh?

Or what?

Besides I think we all should stick together

now that we are officially fugitives.

Wait what do you mean

by official fugitives?

You don't know? You

did'nt tell Caleb?

Yesterday Jeanine announced that

the attack on Abnegation

was organized by a group of

regenade divergents And their sympathizers.

So they're blaming

this whole thing on us?


And Jeanine needed a

reason to petition to the

council so they could

institute martial law.

And now she had one.

Staying here at Amity is

the best option for now.

We need to keep an eye

of the ground and find

out where the rest of

the dauntless are.

-Then we can make a move.

-We need to kill Jeanine.

I know, we're not ready yet.

- Beatrice you're not being serious, right?

-No I am being serious..

I'm not gonna stop until she's dead.

Tris you can't just go

around killing people.

She's right, listen

to your sister.

Tris, I think you should go to

erudite and kill

Jeanine yourself.

I will stay with Caleb so

they don't kill him too.


C'mon you know.

What you did with your parents.


What do you think you're doing?

-My office! Now!

Enjoy your meal everyone, enjoy your meal.

Hey, you need to calm down.

Was I not clear that the terms of your sanctuary here

included non violence?

Well I can guarantee you nothing like this will ever happen again.

Be that as it may, you can no longer stay here with us.

Your presence, it is just too disruptive.

The truth is that our sanctuary was never

gonna last very long here anyways.

Was it?

With you not standing up to Jeanine.

-You don't understand us at all.

-No I do understand you.

I understand that you think you can

stay out of this but you can't.

One day she's gonna show up

and Jeanine is gonna take

whatever power you think

you have away from you.


Look, Johanna, we need a little more time.

We need to find out where the rest of

the Dauntless are, then we can leave.

And then what? Attack Erudite?

-I will not be a part of your violence.

-No one is asking you to.

We just need a few more days.


-One, what?

-One more chance.

See, to be Amity is to forgive others, and yourself.

You're hurting Tris.

And my heart goes out to you.

I know what it's like to stand helpless

while you loose the ones you love.

But killing Jeanine will not

gonna bring your mother back.

I know you're angry, but

you're letting it consume you.

-What is it?

Stay here and keep quite.

Gentlemen, Amity welcomes you.

-To what do we owe the pleasure.

-This isn't really a social call Johanna.

-We're looking for divergents.

-I see.

Well of course, anything

we can do to help.

We need you to volunteer

your faction to be tested.

This is screening technology from Erudite.


Not that Jeanine is heading

up yo the council the

whole improval processing

got a little easier.

-You're exceeding your jurisdiction.

-Now, Johanna.

What happened to that Amity politeness.

The easy way, or the hard way?
