(kids killing kids)
In what was once North America, the people of the Capitol of Panem, rule the 12 Districts of Panem (#13 was completely destroyed in a rebel uprising many years ago) with an iron fist.
Starvation and fear are the norm.
As a constant reminder of the control the Capital has over the people of Panem, once a year they hold "The Hunger Games" where a boy and a girl, between the ages of 12 and 18, from each District get the honor of fighting each other to the death.
