Taking the Test
In the futuristic society, when an individual turns 16, he takes a test that determines which faction he is best suited for, and then must decide whether to stay with the faction of his parents, or leave to join another group and never see his family again.
Woodley's Tris is a rare individual because when she took the test, she discovered that she could fit into more than one faction, making her a Divergent, viewed as a risk to society.
After Tris joins Dauntless, she begins to have feelings for her mysterious instructor, Four.
Dauntless focuses on bravery. They wear mainly black, and are tasked with being the protectors and the warriors of the society.
Shailene Woodley, Zoe Kravitz and Ben Lloyd-Hughes pose on set. They play Tris, Christina and Will, respectively, who are all training to become members of Dauntless.
