  • Rising action
  • She skipped me, am I hearing it wrong? She made a mistake. I feel dizzy...
  • Rising action
  • AHHH Oh my god stop!!!!
  • Jonas is about to turn 12 and lives in an dystopia city were everything is the same. This is called sameness. People don't have freedom. Everything is controlled and predictable, and there are a lot of rules. There are no colors, there are no rainbows, there are no sunlight, nor weather.
  • Climax
  • This community fooled me, so that is how releases are done!??!
  • Bye bye little guy!
  • Each year, there is a celebration of the children that is becoming older. Jonas is becoming a 12 this year, and he is going to be selected for a job. The ceremony day has come. Jonas was not called. But after all the children were selected, Jonas was finally called, and he is chosen, not selected, as the receiver of memory. He met the Giver, which could give him memories of the past that has been erased from the community. This first memory was riding a sled.
  • Falling action
  • As his training goes on, Jonas receives more and more memories. This time, he receives a memory of war, and people dying. He was so scared about it that he would never forget it. Then, he goes to the playing field and saw his best friends playing a game of "war". He stood in the middle of the field, and his vision saw the bloody dying soldier one more time. he was trying to stop the game, but the others thought he ruined it. He felt so bad that he was about to cry, but he knew that without the memories, they will never understand.
  • Resolution
  • I feel so tired but I am aware with certainty and joy. I feel so happy! I think I heard music in my community, but perhaps it was only an echo.
  • One day, Jonas's dad was releasing one baby, because it was a twin. Jonas Never saw a release before, so he asked the giver if he could see it. The giver said yes, and he said all private ceremonies were recorded, so he played the tape. Jonas saw his dad inserting a needle into the baby's head. Then the baby stopped moving. He had realized what happened, as his vision flashed between what was happening and that bloody dying soldier again. At this point his thoughts and perspective changed completely. He has the same thoughts as the giver now, they both thought that the community has made a totally wrong choice.
  • I won't! I won't go home! You can't make me!
  • Sit up, Jonas, you may stay here tonight. I want to talk to you. But you mist be quiet now, while I notify your family unit, no one must hear you cry.
  • Jonas has realized what the community has done. He now knows what has happened and what the community has done. Jonas cannot take this anymore, so he and the Giver plans on running away from the society. When Jonas pass the boarder, all the memories will be back to all the people in the community. He is also doing this in search of another city, where things are normal. The next day, he runs, with Gabriel, a child that he had taken care of for a few month that is going to be released tomorrow. Search planes are all over the place, Jonas hides with Gabe so they don't find them.
  • Gabe do u want some food? We are nearly out of food.
  • My legs hurt! We have been walking and running for days! And we slept unit trees for days too! My legs muscles are taut!
  • WAE WA WAE!?
  • As Jonas got further and further away from the community, he felt more and more happy. This is unpredictable life with colors, animals, and all the natural things. He had realized that this is way better than the life in the community. This also communicates the theme that differences make human life worthy and that is what the meaning of life is. At last, he finally saw lights, and music. He had found "Elsewhere". Even though there was pain in their community, there wasn't any feeling of real life.
  • I think we are here Gabe!
