Set in the future, a boy suspects that the emotionless, crime free, seemingly perfect world in which he lives may not be as utopian as it appears. In this perfect world where there is no conflict, racism or sickness, every member of this society has a specific role, and 12-year-old Jonas is selected to be the Receiver of Memories. The Giver is an old man who teaches the young boy how to use his gift, and slowly Jonas uncovers the truth behind his world’s past. He discovers that many years earlier his forefathers gave up humanity in order to have a stable society.
