1) Katniss Everdeen lives in District 12 with her mother and little sister Prim(rose). Her father died when he was working in the mines, he learned Katniss to hunt. Katniss often went hunting with Gale.
2) Every year the Capitol organizes The Hunger Games. One boy and one girl from age 12 till 18 will be chosen to play it, the goal: survive. There are 24 tributes playing the game. When the reaping started, Prim Everdeen was announced. Katniss couldn't believe it, she was only 12 years old! That's when she decided to volunteer. Then the boy tribute was chosen: Peeta Mellark.
3) Katniss and Peeta went to the Capitol with the train, they met their trainer/sponsor and weren't happy with him. He was a drunkard who once won the Hunger Games. The 24 tributes were placed in a forested area, in the center they could get food, weapons and other supplies. Katniss went for the bow she saw and got away just in time.
4) Peeta formed an alliance with the trained tributes from District 1 and 2, Katniss formed an alliance with Rue from District 11. Rue was only 12 years old. The Gamemakers constantly manipulate the surroundings to keep the Game entertaining. Then Rue and Katniss decide they have to destroy the supplies from Districht 1 and 2 because they're trained to kill, not to gather food. So without food they'll die. Rue sets up campfires to distract them, meanwhile Katniss destroyed the supplies. When Katniss went back to Rue, she couldn't find her until she heard Rue screaming, but Katniss was too late. Katniss shot a arrow through the chest of the boy from District 10. Then she made a bed out of roses to show respect for Rue and to stand up against the Games, to show that it isn't a fair game.
5) The Gamemakers announced that the rules have changed, and that 2 tributes from the same District can serve as co-victors. That's when Katniss goes looking for Peeta who's been hurt badly. She finds him and takes good care of him.
6) When there are only 3 tributes left, Katniss, Peeta and Cato, the Gamemakers drove them to the middle of the area. They also sent mutated wolves with the eyes from every tribute and the colour of their hair. Katniss managed to kill Cato which made Katniss and Peeta win, but this wasn't exciting enough for the Gamemakers. They changed the rules back, there could only be one winner. Then Katniss and Peeta decided they would both eat the poisoned berries so they would both die.
