The Divergent Series: Insurgent follows the events of Divergent. In it Shailene Woodley and Theo James reprise their respective characters, Tris and Four, who are now running from Jeanine, the leader of the Erudite faction, who nearly accomplished the mass execution of the entire Abnegation faction. The two try to figure out what Abnegation sacrificed their lives to protect, and why the Erudite leaders will do anything to stop them. As they continue to run, Tris faces one impossible challenge after another as she unlocks the truth about the past and ultimately the future of her world.
