The plot follows a teenage girl named Beatrice "Tris" Prior (Woodley) and centers around her extraordinary circumstances, as she becomes aware that there is no one else like her

In a futuristic Chicago, society is split into five different sectors based on the residents personality traits- Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). But Beatrice is Divergent, meaning she does not belong to any one sector.

On the discovery of this, Tris is hunted down to be exterminated due to a sinister leader who wants absolute total control of the population. But when uncovering a plot against her perfect society, Tris needs to utilize this gift in order to save her loved ones.
