"Stop! Stop! Ladies and gentleman, I am pleased to announce the victors or the Seventy-fourth Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark! I give you- the tributes of District 12!"
Katniss' sister, Prim, gets chosen to be a part of the Hunger Games and represent District 12. However, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She is then put into the Hunger Games and has to figure out how to survive for Prim and her mom.
Katniss befriends another tribute named Rue and teams up with her, but when Rue dies Katniss has to continue to fight for Prim and her mom.
During the games, the operators announced that two tributes from the same district could be together and win so Katniss goes looking for Peeta who was severely injured and almost dies but Katniss keeps him alive.
After Katniss and Peeta are the last two people alive, the operators of the games announced that the rules have once again been changed so there can only be one victor. None the less, they didn't want to kill each other so they decided to both die, but before they could kill themselves the announcer says that they are both winners.
Right before Katniss and Peeta are supposed to be reintroduced to each other, Haymitch tells Katniss that the Capital is mad at her and Peeta for using the berries to try and kill both of them instead of giving Panem one winner.
"Listen up. You're in trouble. Word is the Capital's furious about you showing them up in the arena. The one thing they can't stand is being laughed at and they're the joke of Panem."
After Katniss and Peeta leave the Capital and are heading home, Katniss tells Peeta about the Capital being mad at them, and he gets upset because how she had acted was all just a stunt and Katniss didn't really love him the way he loved her. When they get back to District 12 they continue to pretend that they are in love even though Peeta is still mad.
