I think its our tradition...

It comes out of a...

...particularly painful

part of our history.

Yes. Yes.

But it's been a way

we've been able to heal.

At first it was a

reminder of the rebellion

It was the price the

Districts had to pay.

But I think it has grown from that.

I think its a...

Its something that

nets us all together.

This is your third year's game?

What defines your personal signature?

Shhhh. It's okay.

It's okay.

You're just dreaming.

You're dreaming.

I know.

I know what its like.

It's your first...

Prim, your name's gonna

be there once, they're

not gonna pick you!

Try to go to sleep.

I can't.

Just try.

Just try.

Deep in the meadow.

Under the willow.

Hop in the grass.

A soft green and pillow.

You remember that song?


You finish it.

I gotta go.


I just gotta go.

But I'll be back.

I love you.

I'll still cook you.

What're you gonna do with

that when you kill it?

Damn you, Gale!

It's not funny.

What're you gonna do with

a 100 pound deer, Katnip?

It's Reaping Day, the place is

crawling with Peacekeepers.

I was gonna sell it.

From kisskeepers..

Of course you were.

Like you don't sell the Peacekeepers.

No! Not today.

It's the first deer

I've seen in a year.

Now, I have nothing.


What if they did? Just one you.

Why if everyone just stop watching?

They won't, Gale.

What if they did? What if we did?

Won't happen.

You root for your favorite, you cry

when they get killed. It's sick.


If no one watches...

Then they don't have a game.

It's as simple as that.



Fine, laught at...

I'm not laughing at you.

We could do it, you know?

Take off. Live in the woods.

What we do anyway?

They'd catch us.

Maybe not.

Cut out our tongues or worse.

We wouldn't make it five miles.

No, I get five miles.

We'll go that way.

I have Prim. You have your brothers.

They can come too.

Prim in the woods?

Maybe not.

I'm never having kids.

Not might.

If I don't live here.

But you do live here.

I know, but if I didn't.

Oh, I forgot.


Oh my God!

Is this real?

Yeah. Better be.

Cost me a squirrel.

Happy Hunger Games.

And be the odds be

ever in your favor.

How many times did

your name in today?


I guess the odds aren't

exactly in my favor.

Thank you girl.

What's this?

That's a... Mocking Jay.

How much?

You keep it.

It's yours.

Thank you.


Aww. Look at you.

You look beautiful.

Let's better tuck in

that tail by the back.

Made something out for you two.


How you look beautiful too.

We should oughta pick you.

Oh no.

Here's how it will

pick you in the back.


Wanna see what I got you today?

It's a Mocking Jay pin.

To protect you.

And as long as you have it.

Nothing bad will happen to you.


I promise.


Shh. Prim, it's okay. It's okay. Shh.

Okay, it's time to send her now.

Okay, they will prick your finger

to take just a little bit of blood.

I'm scared.

Prim, it doesn't hurt

much. Just a little.


Go sit down there

with the little kids.

I'll find you after okay?



Go ahead.






Welcome. Welcome.

Happy Hunger Games.


May the odds be ever in your favor.

Now, before we begin.

We have a very special film.

Brought to you all the

way from the Capitol.


Terrible war.

With those...

Orphan... and motherless child.

This was the uprising

that brought our land.

the country that fed them.

Protected them.

Then came the peace.

Hard fought.

Solely won.

The people.

Rose up from the ashes

and a new era was born.
