May the odds be ever with you

Abstract: 

Against all odds, Katniss, the hero of The Hunger Games, wins a competitive reality show on which children engage in a fight to the death. The games are set in a post–U.S. North America culture and are televised for all citizens to watch. Twenty-four children, 2 from each of 12 regions, are sent as tributes to the games. Only one winner can emerge, and 23 children will be slaughtered in the annual event. The story includes themes of transformative experience, emerging leadership, and a female character who differs markedly from current Hollywood portrayals. The lead character is analyzed within the archetypical representations developed in generational theory.  Katniss is similar in character to the previous Hero archetype generation, commonly known as the greatest generation. In experiencing the story, the viewer may find an opportunity for transformative learning, of a different content than that of characters, but potentially as strong.
