Divergent (2014) is a dystopian sci-fi action film from director by Neil Burger. It is based on the novel of the same name by Veronica Roth.
Divergent is the first movie in the series (there are three of them) and stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ashley Judd, Jai Courtney, Ray Stevenson, Zoë Kravitz, Miles Teller, Tony Goldwyn, Ansel Elgort, and Maggie Q.
Set in post-apocalyptic Chicago, survivors are divided into five factions. These are Abnegation, the selfless; Amity, the peaceful; Candor, the honest; Dauntless, the brave; and Erudite, the intelligent.
All 16-year-olds are tested to determine the faction that suits them best, but they select their own faction at the Choosing Ceremony. Those who do not complete the ceremony become “Factionless” and live on the streets as outcasts.
The film follows Beatrice Prior was born into Abnegation, but her test results show equal attributes of multiple factions (Abnegation, Erudite, and Dauntless). That marks her as Divergent which is covered up to avoid suspicion.
But she soon learns that a sinister secret plot is brewing and all is not what it seems in their perfect society.

What Does Divergent Mean?
In the film, Divergent refers to a 16-year-old, who when tested to find out which trait they possess, actually has more than one.
The lead character Beatrice displays equal amounts of Abnegation, Erudite, and Dauntless – which means she is selfless, brave and intelligent.
The problem with that is the dystopian society they live in defines its citizens by only five different factions. And each person should fit neatly into one of them.
Divergents are considered a threat to the population's safety because they can exercise free will which is not allowed.
