Insurgent Story

The Divergent Series: Insurgent (also known as Insurgent) is a 2015 science fiction action film directed by Robert Schwentke, based on Insurgent, the second book in the Divergent trilogy, written by Veronica Roth. It is the sequel to the 2014 film Divergent and the second installment in The Divergent Series, produced by Lucy Fisher, Pouya Shabazian and Douglas Wick, with a screenplay by Brian Duffield, Akiva Goldsman, and Mark Bomback. Robert Schwentke took over from Neil Burger as director, while Burger will serve as the executive producer of the film. Adding to the existing cast, the supporting cast was filled out with Octavia Spencer, Naomi Watts, Suki Waterhouse, Rosa Salazar, Daniel Dae Kim, Jonny Weston, Emjay Anthony, and Keiynan Lonsdale.


ursued by Eric deep into the Amity faction, Tris, Four, Peter, and Caleb split up and are pursued. Peter gives up as Tris, Four, and Caleb board a train headed into Factionless territory. During the ensuing fight with Factionless members aboard the train, Caleb makes his first kill, and, horrified by what he has done, has second thoughts about continuing. On the train, Four reveals his true name: Tobias Eaton. At that point they are given safe passage into the heart of Factionless, where it is discovered the leader of Factionless is Tobias's mother, Evelyn Johnson-Eaton. After an argument at the dinner table, the three leave Factionless for Candor. While enroute, Caleb states that he cannot continue with them, and goes a different direction.

When Tris and Four arrive at Candor, at first they are welcomed, and Tris must answer some hard questions evasively. Soon, however, they are arrested and brought before Jack Kang, the leader of Candor, who cannot believe Jeanine would go so far as to fraudulently make Tris and Four wanted for crimes they did not commit. Using reason, Four inquires about the fairness of a trial in Erudite as opposed to one in Candor, and then requests the trial in Candor through the use of the initiation truth serum.

During the trial, Four admits that he joined Dauntless to escape his father's abuse, and that he was going to leave Dauntless to be factionless after this last group of initiates but he saw and fell in love with Tris and decided to protect her, and Tris admits her guilt in shooting Will. This angers Four and Christina, who were unaware that Tris was Will's killer. The Candor are attacked by Dauntless traitors led by Eric; many people are shot with a new simulation serum. Tris and Uriah, who are revealed to be Divergent, discover what is happening and attempt to warn the remaining Divergent, but are captured by Eric. Eric murders one divergent in custody, and is in the process of murdering another when stopped by Tris. They are then rescued by Four and Candor, at which point Eric is taken into custody and Four summarily executes him with a shot to the head.

Back in Factionless, Four reluctantly agrees with his mother Evelyn that war is inevitable and that they must begin preparing. The long term sim serum is activated by Jeanine, causing Marlene, Christina and one young boy to stand on a ledge chanting that Tris Prior must turn herself in, over and over, as they step closer and closer to the edge. Tris and Tori climb the sides as fast as they can, and rescue two of the three. Marlene plunges to her death. Overcome by guilt, Tris decides to turn herself in. She spends the night with Four, who thinks he has changed her mind, but she leaves in the early hours as Evelyn silently looks on from a window, to turn herself in to Erudite.

The moment she steps through the Erudite screen, she is surrounded and arrested, at which point Jeanine, intent on opening the box, subjects her to each of the sim trials of the Factions. Tris is almost killed, and Jeanine reluctantly stops the sim, allowing Tris to rest in a cell with her brother Caleb, who confesses that he is being selfless by turning his only sister over to the Erudites because of what he thinks is best. Peter, who has made a deal with Jeanine in exchange for a position in her regime, is the guard assigned to Tris to escort her back to the testing chamber. Enroute, he jabs her in the back with an injection.

Once again, Tris goes through the simulations, and dies. Jeanine becomes distraught for a moment, then resigned to the fact that she must once again find another Divergent. Tris's corpse is disconnected from the sim cables and wheeled over to Four's cell, where he has been held after being captured while trying to rescue Tris. In a vicious display of gloating, Peter shows Four Tris's lifeless corpse, and Four proceeds to overpower the guards with Peter bare-handed. Then Tris takes a breath. Peter assists Four in overpowering the guards, acquiring their weapons. Peter then goes to the control room to change the security in order to allow access to the sim room for Four and Tris, who now realizes what the box is and why she now needs to open it.

Tris successfully opens the box, and, much to the chagrin of Jeanine, it informs everyone in the control room and testing area that they, the entire walled city, is an experiment, and that the Divergents are evidence of the success of that experiment, and that the world is waiting outside for them to return to humanity. Jeanine, realizing the box and its revelation will be the undoing of her power, orders the box buried and Four and Tris immediately executed.

Before this occurs, the Factionless army hits the Erudite facility, blowing the doors off the control and sim rooms. Caleb is led away and Jeanine is murdered by Evelyn after a short exchange between the two women, and the new alliance of Dauntless and Factionless must now decide how best to govern what's left of the city.
