As the new Receiver, Jonas is given the whole of humanity's history that transferred to him by the previous generation's Receiver, who is now known as the eponymous Giver. Jonas experiences for the first time real joy, but he also learns of fear, strife, war and sadness. He also learns that the community has sacrificed its core humanity to give comfort to the people, and now he must come to a decision on what to do.
In this still from The Giver, Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) stands with Fiona (Odeya Rush).
