The community has so many rules and Jonas has to follow them all. Here Jonas sees a plane fly over head and the alarm goes off so he runs into the nearest building.
Why is there a plane flying over us?? That's against the rules!
Today Jonas' number was skipped for the ceremony and at the end everyone was confused including him. Jonas is now called up and is to become the new receiver. This is the main conflict because Jonas will have to face 'the memories' and he will experience things that no one else has.
Today is a very special day. Today is the day that we choose a new receiver! Our last receiver 10 years ago didn't go so well but this year we have made sure to choose accurately and correctly
Here the Giver transfers to Jonas the first memory of pain. It is of him on a sled down a hill but his time there is ice and he slips and he breaks his leg. Jonas has to receive every memory that the giver gives to him no matter what the circumstances are. He need to know how everything feels and Jonas thinks that it's unfair that he and the Giver should keep all the memories and not anyone else.
Ok Jonas. I can't protect you forever. Lay down and I will give you a memory of pain.
Giver, all you have been giving me are good memories with no pain. But you said that there was going to be pain but I don't feel it.
The Giver and Jonas talk about a plan to escape the Community all night. Jonas is surprised but he agrees. It will be risky but he will do it. Once he's gone all the memories will go back to the people and the Elders won't know what to do.
Jonas you will have to escape the Community.
Jonas is out of the Community but planes are looking of him while he tries to get farther away. He took Gabe with him because Gabe was going to be 'released' in the morning anyway. He and Gabe are now starving and freezing to death.
After the hard journey he finds himself on a hill of snow with a sled just like in the dream. But this time he won't break his leg. He slides down and he sees something on the other side.
