Woodley plays Tris, a misfit whose personality type doesn’t fit into any of these pre-assigned groups, labelling her a “divergent”, and a perceived threat to the status quo.
The story takes place in a dystopian future Chicago organized into five rigid castes. At the age of sixteen, every young citizen must decide which faction they'll devote their lives to:
Abnegation, who value selflessness
Dauntless, who cultivate bravery
Erudite, who are all about intellect
Amity, who mellow out in peace
Abnegation, who prize selflessness; and Candor, who are always honest.
