This film, based on Lois Lowry's book, tells the story of a perfect world.
Everyone here is happy. When Jonas is 12 years old, he's chosen to be the
community's Receiver of Memories. He enters into training with an old man
called The Giver. From the Giver, Jonas learns about pain, sadness, war, and
all the unhappy truths of the "real" world. He quickly realizes that his
