A different movie about love and emotions that questions the exaggerations of some modern Western values when confusing equality and sameness, peace and numbness.

In a seemingly perfect community, without war, pain, suffering, differences or choice, a young boy is chosen to learn from an elderly man about the true pain and pleasure of the "real" world they had left behind.

A post-apocaliptic movie set in the future, released in 2014. Based on a novel by American writer Lois Lowry.

- The script has some mistakes, but mostly correct -


After The Ruin, we started over.
Creating a new society.
One of true equality.
Rules were the building blocks of that equality.
We learned them as new children.
Rules like:
- Use precise language,
- Wear your assigned clothing,
- Take your morning medication [Injected].
- Obey the curfew.
- Never lie.


My name is Jonas.
I don't have a last name, none of us did.
That day, the daybefore graduation, I admit it, I was scared.
Tomorrow we'd be assigned our jobs.
Our purpose.
Seemed everyone knew theirs already.
Not me.
I was lost.
I always felt that I saw things… Differently.
I saw things other people didn't.

I never said anything.
I didn't wanna be different.
Who would?
- Jonas!
- I apologize, we're late, I got Asherto come say goodbye the teacher.
- I accept your apology.
Asher and Fiona, we've beenfriends our whole lives.
Asher was the boy who made everyone laugh.
Fiona… well. She was the girl whomade everybody smile.
Whoever is listening please, please! Do not make me vise chiefof voice management(?). Please.

We lived in a world wheredifferences weren't allowed.
There was no "Popular", no "Fame",no "Losers" and no "Winners".
Our elders had eliminated all of that, sothere be no conflict between us.
Fear, pain, envy, hate…They weren't words, so much as sounds.
Their echoes were gone to the other side of history.
I wonder if I should apologize for what I did.
I'll let you decide.

I'm going to miss volunteering here.
Oh No! If ever there is a person boring to work in the Nurturing Center.
I could be surprise, right?Jonas, if you had to guess, of all positions the Elders picked for me…Nurturing Center.
Welcome to the Nurturing Center.

- I got this. I got this.
 Think Heaven.
- Come on.
 Come on.
 - Think Heaven.
We win! Or you might be the champion!
- Which one is the heavier?
- Mine.
- Father, I think Fiona put herfinger on the scale!
- I did not!
- Oh, this little guy didn't qualify for tomorrow's ceremony.
He's just not strong enough tobe assigned to a family yet.
- He looks so unhappy…It's okay, Jonas,you can open it.
 Hey! It's Jonas.
Here let me.
There you go, there you go… It's okay- Some people have it.
- That is just not fair!Be strong, Gabriel!You looked at his name?Is it not against the rules?Yeah, i-it is…I just thought having aname would help him grow.
I whispered to him so no one can hear.
Sometimes I call him "Gabe".
It's usually anxious,I thought that if I hear…- Are you okay?- Huh?Yeah, I'm fine.
So the old man turns to Elder and says,"Do you know who I am?"And the Elder says,"Sir, I know you're old,but that is notthe excuse for being prideful.
"Then the old man says, "No,really, I am asking who am I"?I don't get it…"Who am I".
Like he forgot who he was.
Okay, but wouldn't the joke bebetter if the old man says…So one…one… two…Three!- Aren't we graduates now?- You do this every time, come on!One, two, three…!There you go…So… I guess this is it.
Last night of our childhood.
I guess everything isgonna be different.
No, tomorrow, the only thingthat changes is what we do.
It doesn't change who we are.
- Good question.
 Who are we?- Friends.
- Friends forever.
- Yes.
Even when you're bothdesigned be birth mothers.
Well, I guess, we'll find out tomorrow, huh?Citizens are reminded that the eveningrecreation will ending in  minutes.
Thank you.
Well he did need to be rehabilitated.
I know he was Lily's teacher,but what was I supposed to do?I feel…disappointment.
- What was elder's decision?- Released to elsewhere.
Can I released elsewhere, Mother?Even just for one day…?No you are to young, Lily-billy.
Jonas… your turn for feelings.
Well, I guess some sort of…Terrified.
Precision of language.
I mean anxious.
When you are about to graduateyou, did you ever feel…that there was noposition meant for you?They've been watchingsince you were a new child.
The Elders are never wrong.
You will find your place.
Welcome, citizens, to theannual ceremony of advancement.
Please, standby for a transmission.
- Good morning, Community.
- Good morning, Chief Elder…I apologize for my remote attendance.
We accept your apology.
I can't be at everyceremony - in person.
But here's the secret youare my favorite community.
However, because we do not lie, I readlyadmit I said that to every community.
Beginnings…From disorder and chaos, fromgreat suffering, great pain…from confusion, and envy and hatred…came a solution communities.
Beautiful places,where disorder became harmony.
Thank you.
 Let me get through it.

Jonas has not been assigned aposition, Jonas has been selected.
We are not hasty this time, and wecould not afford another failure.
Jonas posses all four attributes.
Intelligence, integrity,courage and one I can name, but…I can not describe thecapacity to see beyond.
But I must warn you yourtraining involves pain.
Pain far beyond anything we known.
Are you strong enough?Do we think Jonas is brave enough?Jonas, you have been selected asour next Receiver of memories.
Thank you for your childhood.
Jonas…Jonas, Jonas…- Help me up, please.
 - Okay.
This leg, yup.
 That one.
 You got it.
- Sit back, Sit back…- Is Jonas now more powerful than you?What is the Chief Elder mean,when she said"We can not affordanother failure"?- Well, ten years ago, the receiver…- We can not speak of it.
You've been greatly honored.
- You got it.
 Go, go!- I can do it.
We should probably catch Lily.
- Good! Good, Lily!- I can ride!Receiver of memory.
 Five rules.
One Report directly to thereceiver of memory for your training.
After training, returnimmediately to your dwelling.
Two, From this moment, you are exemptfrom all rules governing rudeness.
You may ask any questions.
Three, beside from your daily injection,you may not receive other medicines.
Especially those for pain.
Four, you may not discussyour training with anyone.
- Your look so important…- I don't know…?- Stick out? - Oh, yeah,there is only one receiver of memory.
What have they say again?"You have the capacity to see beyond"?Yeah…Can't wait to hear every single detail!Five you may lie.
Asher and I, we used to dare eachother to get closed to his place.
It was built right on the edge.
We all heard of peoplegetting lost to the edge.
Never to be seen again.
And yet… here I was.
Being told that I have toget close to it every day.
For the rest of my life.
Uhm, Hi.
 I'm Jonas…Please gaze at the sensor.
Welcome, Receiver of Memories.
They're called Books.
Your Books.
- My name is…- I know who you are.
Of course, I apologize.
"I apologize"…?Don't say that.
"I apologize"… don't apologize to me.
Never again, not here.
We haven't time to "apologize".
That's an automatic pleasantry.
It does not mean anything.
I apologise… I'm sorry.
 I mean…We are here for only one purpose.
Simply stated…Although it isn't really simple at allI'll transmit you all thememories that I hold within me.
Memories of the past.
I'd be very interested tolearn about your life.
No, no.
Not my life.
You'll learn the secrethistory of the world!Before me, before you,generations back and back and back.
When things were differentwhen there was more.
"More"…?Get… Chair.
You see, no one in our communityhas any memory of the past.
Only me.
When the elders need guidancethat is beyond their experience,I provide wisdom, that is now your role.
To provide guidance in the present,using the memories of the past.
Move closer.
Where to begin…?Move closer.
There is no way for me to prepare you,for what I'm going to do now.
It's gonna takecomfort in knowing…You're completely helpless.
If any of this proof is too muchfor you, tell me immediately.
I just have…Silent Night…Holy Night…All…That was… It was…- How that happened?- What do you mean 'how'? It happened.
- But it's impossible!- And yet, it happened.
But… why?Why don't we have…That…Thing…Come on… the memories they giveyou the word, it's not a "thing"…- "Sledge"!- Sledge.
And the…- Snow.
- Snow…- Did my parents have them… Did you…?- No… no… It's a very distant memory.
Simply stated…There is no snow becauseof climate control.
But why don't people know about them?What's so dangerous inthe memory of a sledge?What's so dangerous…?For sledge you need snow,Snow is cold, cold destroys crops…which meant farmers couldn't farm.
Unpredictable weather,hills, mountains…made it difficult to transport of food.
And we had hunger, starvation, famine…Everything is connected,everything is in balance.
Where there is good,there is always bad.
- The two…- Show me more!Let's go for a walk.
A real one, with your legs.
At the bottom of the hill…I saw something.
Like a place.
- "Home".
- Home.
"Home"? Like a dwelling?- Mr.
 Receiver…- Good morning!No… It is different.
A dwelling is not a "home".
A "Home" means more.
Your instructions saidI can lie, do you lie?Ah, all the time! Mostlyfor personal amusement.
But I won't lie to you.
How do I know that's not a lie?There was someone else before me.
What happened to them?One more question!If I'm now the receiver,what does that make you?Well.
 Then that must make me…The Giver.
So how was it?- It was good.
- What did you do?- We just talked.
- What else?That's it.
- You seem different.
- How do you mean?- I'll see him tomorrow.
- He cancel them, no matter what I do.
- And you said you'll lookafter it.
 - I know, I said.
- I apologize.
- I accept your apology.
- Thank you, Dinah.
- Thank you.
- Gabriel! - How does Jonasknow the child's name?- Jonas met Gabriel the other day.
- He's so cute!Would you like to issue me awarning, director of Justice?Just for a while, Mother,till little guy catch up us.
I think we all agree thatyou will sleep in my room.
- Only if the Elders says it's okay.
- They will.
Yeah…Lily, give me a comfort object.
Come on, Lily, it's time for bed.
- Look at this…- Bye, baby!This is a mythicalcreature called "hippo.
"And it's incredibly fast, becauseit has two, three, four, five legs!We had the same mark.
And it's very strong…They almost did not haveto see his to know.
I felt it.
Felt that one day Gabrielwould be chosen too.
…hippo!Yeah…!- That's the pain they all talk about.
- No… Not even close.
- Did you…- It had a face!- Wait… Was that thing alive…?- Don't skip ahead.
- Did you notice anything about them?- Yes It hurt.
No, any quality?.
Well maybe…I think I saw it in friend Fiona's hair.
My twist is yellow.
If you thought the slid was special…It's…"Red"!- Just like her hair…- Yes.
There are red, green, blue…Many different colours.
You'll see them all in time.
With our people… They chose to…do away with all of them…Color, race, religion…They created sameness.
If we were different,we could be envious…angry, resentful…consumed by hatred.
We need sameness.
- Don't you think?- Oh, I completely agree!And still……it's also……beautiful.
They always saidthe Elsewhere is so far away.
But it wasn't.
It was right there.
Close enough to touch.
Jonas, have you fallen…?- Do you need immediate help?- No, I.
 I was just…What's going on with you?Nothing's going on with me.
No you're right, it's totally normal tolie in the grass and stare at the sky.
No, I was just…You are seeing something,aren't you?Can't you tell me?Give me your hands.
What do you see?- Oh my goodness…- You see it?Yes.
It's water.
Come on, concentrate.
Uhm… Hi!Jonas was just teachingme about his training.
As you can see,it's "incredibly interesting".
Can't be as great as mine.
Can't have your minds blown…?- Whoa! Do you know how to fly those?- Absolutely!Sort off… I'm learning.
When I'm flying, lookingdown at everything…- It's like I'm seeing things for the firsttime.
 - You get to fly into elsewhere?Oh, yeah!Once, when I waslooking at that mist…Even though they tell us thereis nothing close to the edge,I thought I saw a treeout there somewhere.
Don't get too excited, I'veactually seen elsewhere.
It's just mostly weird rocksthat kind of stuff.
What's weird about them?There is these two huge rocksleaning against each othermaking a kind of… triangle.
Hey, it's kind like our triangle!- What's past their?- Don't know.
We are not allowed to fly past that.
So many secrets…So what are your secrets?Uhh… nothing.
What do you mean, "Uhh, nothing"?You are receiver of memory.
Maybe I can show you.
- Okay.
 Grab a tray.
- What…?Bring it over to the solar plate, come on!Now, this might seem a littlefunny, but you got to trust me.
 Sit down on the tray.
Careful…- Whoa… whoa! You're not gonna…- What? Are you scared?I'm scared of nothing.
 I was just…- It's against the rules, Jonas.
- Since when do you care about the rules?Actually I have auxiliary training.
I'll see you guys.
Look who grew up…Lucky for you, I haven't.
Okay… Now go!Put your heels down to slow it!I think your training maybe more funnier than mine.
Please, standby for aCommunity announcement.
Citizens are reminded that it is impoliteto touch community membersoutside your family unit.
Thank you.
He is punctual.
 He is inquisitive.
- How inquisitive?- He's interested in his position.
Then why is he breaking the rules?He has been observed trying to share histraining with his former classmate.
That always happens.
But it's an impossible experiment.
Even I tried to share the memoriesback when I was in training.
If you remember…So… forget about it.
I don't tell you what to do inyour position, so don't tell me.
I apologise, but…- Isn't that what's happening now?- Your apology is accepted, but…You're being careless.
You are moving too fast,we both know what happenedten years ago with the girl.
The girl had a name.
You think I don'tremember her name?I know you feel the loss.
The boy must hold in the pain.
Don't fail us again.
Want me to read all these?Uh, What's this…?"One day you should meet a boy whoanswers to the name of Jonas.
""He should be the mostpowerful of all the receivers".
- Wait that says…?- Don't be gullible.
"Plan for sameness.
"- Another trick?- Actually, no.
It's some kind of… map.
Triangle of Rocks! Hey…! That's real,my friend Asher actually saw it!Look at all this towers…What are they for?How could your friend seethe Triangle of Rocks?He's a pilot, he told me, he saw it.
What's past that? Past the "outeredge, boundary of Memories"?A mystery.
"Boundary of Memories",is that what they've builtso the memories will onlystay within you and me?- Let's move on.
- Wait!That boundary is meantto keep the memories in.
So, if a receiver crosses it, does thatmeans the memories get set free?Perhaps… perhapsif you and I crossed it,everyone could feelthose memories again.
So what am I seeing today?Nothing.
You are seeing nothing today.
We already covered "seeing beyond".
There is also such athing as "hearing beyond".
A table…? All of the foodwould slide to the floor.
Now don't judge me…I'm not very good.
Even though I had a very good teacher.
Music…Well… music when Ihit the right keys.
Just like music, there's somethingelse you can't see with your eyes.
Something that lives deep inside you.
Something…This morning injections take away.
I thought the injections are for our health.
No… they remove something.
What?Emotions!You like feelings…?Feelings are just fleededon the surface.
But emotions… they are very deep…Primal… they lingerand Jonas…You might not understand whereyou are or what's happening.
But don't think aboutwhat you are seeing.
Listen!Listen to what's calling from inside.
Antonio!What beautiful wedding!Why would anyone wantto get rid of this?Good question…- What are you doing…?- Take my hands!Ready?Are you ready for the fast part?And turn!- Spin!- What are you doing with her?Jonas says it's called dancing.
Please, Standby for a transmission.
- I apologize for my intrusion.
- We accept your apology.
- I just wanted to say "Hello".
- Hello.
- I am Lily.
- Yes, I know.
You are nine now, isn't that right?Lily, I think it's… time for school.
Now we get going.
Hello, Jonas.
- Hello.
- How's your training?Injected.
- Fine.
- I'm concerned about the receiver.
- Many years ago there was an incident.
- What kind of incident?Living alone in a building onthe edge can… isolate a person.
I am concerned that the receiver…is becoming reckless.
Are you being properly prepared?- I think so.
- You are focused?Perhaps you are spending too much timewith friends from your childhood?- I'm focused.
 - Jonas! What doyou and the receiver, actually do?- My rules say not allow to share.
- She is the Elder-chief.
- My rules say not allow to share.
- She is the Elder-chief.
- My rules say not allow to share.
- She is the Elder-chief.
Jonas she only wants to help.
You are right.
But you can't tell thereceiver I told you.
You have my word.
We sit on chairs anddon't talk all day long.
And when the time is up, I came backhere and in the morning I do all it again.
I apologize, but I'm late.
Your apology is accepted.
Goodbye Mother.
He is not usually like this.
I'm surprised you're notmore worried about him.
If he were my responsibility…I would be.
We've been told that Elder-chief kneweverything.
 Things nobody else did.
But I had learned that knowingof what something is…It's not the same as knowinghow something feels.
You could be the very best, the lastone at top of the mountain…Gasping for air, having survived…and be alone.
Be curious.
I got lost… the good kind of lost!I saw sites and sounds,I had no words to describe.
Faces with flesh of all different colors.
I feel so alive…This was forbidden?I didn't know what tothink, what to believe.
"Have faith", The Giver told me.
He said "Faith, thatwas seeing beyond.
"He compared it to the windsomething felt but not seen.
Don't accept.
What is the truth just because it'scoming from someone you respect.
I feel completely stupid,a weird feeling.
Tingles in your hands.
Memories are not just about thepast, they determine our future.
You can change things,you can make things better.
It was life.
It just seemed more complete.
The more I experienced,the more I wanted.
Once there were other living things.
But unlike usthey knew who theirmothers and fathers were.
They had joy…And they had pain.
I can't prepare you for what's going…No need to warn me every single time…No, Jonas.
 You don't understandthere was tremendous cruelty…Giver! I'm not a kid anymore.
 Show me.
That's $ , of ivory.
Come on.
 Come on!- Put in!- Again, again.
No, stop!Stop!Stop…Hey!Hey, Gabe? Okay, Gabe…If I tell you a secret, youpromise not to tell anyone?I'll take that as a "yes.
"This comfort object…is not hippo.
It's an elephant,and once it was real.
And it was beautiful…Citizens are reminded that sleepperiod commences in  minutes.
Thank you.
It was like a memory,but Fiona was there.
You had a dream.
- A what?- A "Dream".
A combination of reality, fantasy,emotions and what you had for dinner.
You've stopped taking yourinjections, haven't you?The emotion was so strong…And at the wedding! Everyone alltogether laughing and dancing…The old with the young, the bride withthe groom, there was something there.
But different from what we have.
Yes…We don't have that anymore.
What do you mean by that?I'm talking about what youfeel for someone else.
And mind can not explain it andyou can't make it go away.
- What is it?- Love.
It's called "Love".
Love…Oh Hi!Hi!So what's new?- What's new with you?- What's ever new?- Why are you being weird?- I'm not.
I'm just…Just…Long the hippo game!Hold On!Father, Do you love me?Jonas.
Precision of language.
 Please!What does "love" mean?I got him, Lily.
Jonas used the word so antiquatedthat it no longer has any application.
If you ask, "Do you enjoy me?"…The answer is certainly "Yes".
Or do Mother and I take pridein your accomplishment…Of course we do.
 Do you understand?Yes.
 I think I finally do.
Hey! Hey… Gabe…!I love you, Gabriel…Giver! You were right, I askedmy family about love and…get down… get down!Giver!They are in the trees! Thereare in the trees, Robbie!Get down! Robbie, get down!Robbie, get down!Robbie, get down! Stay down!I can't see you, man!They are in the trees!Stay down!May Day!Taking heavy fire!Send help!Robbie… Robbie!No…Jonas…What…?- I'm sorry Jonas…- How do people do that?I didn't mean for you to receive that.
Not for years.
 Don't let thisturn you away way.
- I'm not strong enough.
- Of course, not yet.
 But Jonas…This what we need toknow, so we can advise!I can't… I'm sorry, I can't…- I just can't.
- Jonas!Jonas!Jonas, Come back!Please!Come back inside, Let me explain it!When you see something like that…there is no explanation.
Rosemary… Promise meyou come back tomorrow!Rosemary!Hey, Jonas! Come on.
 You are…Just in time.
I did never wanna go back…I didn't want the wisdom.
I didn't want the pain.
I wanted my childhood again.
Scraped knees and ball games…Back then we had played "war".
But the war was real.
The Elders understood that.
They erased it from our world.
Maybe they were right.
- Could you watch over Harry for me?- Of course.
Hey, what's wrong?- Nothing.
- I know you.
- You do, do you?- Yes…What do you think would happen ifyou skipped the morning injection?If you skipped it?Then the sensors would blink andremind me that I forgot it.
No I don't mean if you forgot, I mean…What do you think would happen ifyou chose not to be injected?Jonas, I thought something is wrong.
There is something wrong.
Everything is wrong.
I quit.
 Fiona, I'm donebeing the receiver.
- This morning, I skip the injection.
- Wait "You quit"…?Cut your finger and puta little blood on this apple.
No, you can't quit, if you quit yourposition, you get sent to elsewhere.
Leave in the morning,put the apple over the sensor,- it will find your blood and think it'syour hand.
 - Stop, you're scaring me.
Fiona, I need you to do this,I need you to feel what I know.
An apple wouldn't even work.
I've been doing it for months,since worked every single time.
Don't quit, you can't leave.
I don't think I can goback to that place.
- You will, if you want me to do this.
- Okay, fine.
But tomorrow, after work,meet me in the Triangle.
I wanted to share with her.
Not all of it, but good things.
Was I wrong to want that?I thought about her now.
 All the time.
Hello…? I have something to show you.
Come here!Who are you?Come over here and try this.
- Me…?- Me?Yeah, I want to teach you.
You've come back.
- Where did you learn that?- From the memories you gave me.
And you can do it quiet?It's beautiful.
Who's that?This…is Rosemary.
The previous Receiver.
She's the one they all talk about.
It no longer exists…Except here.
And in my memories.
She was in trainingonly two short months.
Watch how the fingers move…Unlike you.
She wanted to experience…Well, everything!I've only give her pleasantbeautiful memories.
She fought me…- Don't protect me!- No!Don't show me a map and thennot give me all the memories.
- I thought we're gonna help.
- We will.
- But we must move slow.
- Show it to me!You gave her war?I gave her the memory of the child.
A child taken from her mother.
I gave her loss…Too soon!You're going to get a hang on this.
The light went from her eyes…The next morning, without telling me…She went to the Elder-chiefand asked to be released.
So she was released.
 Andnow lives in Elsewhere.
Yes, Receiver.
I'd like to see this morning's release.
Thank you for your instructions.
Okay…That's my father!This one is heavier.
- More twins! Great!- Watch!Oh, good…For a moment I thoughtthey will be exactly the same.
- Here we go…- Then we would have a problem!- Okay…- Thank you, Dinah.
- Hey new…Only one unit less.
Oh, I know it hurts, I know…But I had to put it in your vein, andthe your arms are too tiny.
Almost there…Done! It wasn't so bad, was it?That's death.
- He doesn't know what he's doing.
- "Doesn't know what he's doing"…?- He killed him!- But he doesn't know what it means.
Just like you did,neither did Rosemary.
How can he not see the baby isn't moving?Doesn't that tell him something is wrong?The young and the old killed.
Your friend, Fiona, she will soonbe trained to release as well.
That's a lie.
 She would never do that.
- If Fiona understood…- We are the only one who understand it.
Then it's our fault.
You and me and all the receiversback and back and back and back.
There has to be a way to show them.
To give them the memories sothey can understand!- Yes…- Because if you can't feel…- What's the point?- But… what can you do?Citizens are reminded thatevening recreation will end in  minutes.
Thank you.
Did it work? I don't know how long ittakes for the injection to leave you,- but there a day was long enough…- Why did I do this, Jonas?On the walk here I was thinkingof how I would scold you.
How I would say"Oh, it's fine for you to break the rules,because you are chosen…"When I thought abouttelling you, I just I…I began to think about you.
Was this okay?Do you feel anything?- It feels like…- Fiona.
- What do you feel?- I do not know, I don't…have words to describe it.
Warm…? Does it feel warm?- Warm…?- Does it feel nice?No, I'm… I'm on night shift, I need to…I don't feel right, Jonas.
I need to go and get myinjection, I need to go to work.
- What was that?- Fiona, there is more.
So much more.
I remembered it now.
 I had dreamed of her.
When I was younger.
I told my parents…"It was the stirrings" they said.
"Everyone had them.
""Medication would stop them.
Anything could be fixed.
"(?)"Precision of language"and the teacher said- "That's right, Lily".
- Very Good!Jonas… Just in time for feelings.
- Lily was telling us how she…- Where's Gabe?Uncertainly he was returnedto the nurturing center.
- What happened?- He failed his test of maturity.
 I couldn't askfor another extension,so I'll have to releasehim into elsewhere.
- Release him…? - We certainlygave it a best try, didn't we?- But he's family.
- Precision of language, please!Sit down.
 Eat with us.
I just need to rest for a while.
I hadn't been wrong, this was wrong.
They hadn't eliminated murder,they brought it home!They just called it by a different name.
Father, he didn't know any better.
I did.
Jonas, what are you doing?It's against the rules to leaveyour Community this late.
Asher, there is somethingI have to do,it's right, but it'ssort of against the rules.
If it's right thing to do…How can it be against the rules?There are things I've learned thatyou don't know, that you can't know,- not because it's your fault… - Jonasyou need to go back to your family unit!But that's the point!It isn't my family!And neither is yours!- Asher, I gotta go.
 - Jonas, listen!- Get out of my way.
 - Jonas, listen!What are you…?Giver!Giver! Wake up.
- I have to be sleeping to wake up.
- Something can be done.
- Something can be done!- What do you propose to do?All the memories back and back andback and back can be returned.
I need to leave the Community, I needto find the boundary of memories.
- And then?- And then cross it!- No more discussion.
- Slowly…- Gabe is in danger.
- Slowly.
I can't wait anymore!Something must be done!If you had that map, then whydidn't you try to leave?I was waiting, for someone like you.
You're the reason wehave a chance, so…The plan will be for youto go and for me to stay.
If you did cross this boundary…And if the memories are set free, allof the pain that you felt all the…Confusion, the chaos, it would all return!- So you have to stay to help them?- Yes.
And for my daughter.
That's what you would have wanted.
- Your daughter…?- Rosemary.
Now your friend if he trulysaw the Triangle of Rocks…Bring up Jonas activity forthe past year as well.
- So Asher came directly to you?- Yes.
What was Jonas's dispositionat the evening meal?Dissatisfied.
Setup a communication withthe Receiver of memory.
We're not permitted to seeinto the receiver's residence.
- We can only transmit.
- Well then we shall only transmit.
If you go, head towards the triangle,away from the other communities.
That will lead to boundary of memories.
Please, Standby for a transmission.
- I apologize for your intrusion.
- I accept your apology.
We have a problem receiverin training is missing,And he physically attackedhis friend, Asher.
- He did? That's serious.
- Do you know where Jonas is?I do not.
Well Thank you very much for…helping us to narrowdown the possibilities.
- I'll contact you if he comes here.
- Only if it's not in imposition.
Thank you.
He is lying…- Talk!- They are going to kill Gabe.
I'm leaving, I'm leaving tonightand I'm going to take him with me.
Jonas not yet, you're not ready.
When they decided to kill Gabe,they decided I was ready.
I like this map, don't mess itup, I'll be wanting it back.
You don't mind if I accelerateyour training a bit, do you?You'd think that someone whois the keeper of emotions,then I would be better…Well…I love you, Jonas.
Look… There it is.
You have the courage…Let me give you the strength.
Can I just…Attention all community residents.
The Receiver in training has beenreported missing from his dwelling.
Please be alert,you may be in danger.
Group , will start from the edge.
Then Group , from the center.
Now… like this.
Welcome to the Nurturing Center.
- Shall I convey the others?- Yes.
Jonas! I heard an alert.
What's going on?Hey, where's Gabe? Is he here?- Is he in one of these? - If he is back then,he'll be with uncertains on- Restricted floor.
- Show me where.
Fiona! Please.
They are downstairs, come on.
Jonas was chosen for the mostimportant position in our community.
He was asked if he was strong enough.
It turned out he was not.
Instead, he is a rebel.
He must be stopped.
By you.
When you find him…Take him.
- Gabe is in danger.
- Jonas, he is fine, I'll show you.
No, he is not fine.
He should be here.
- Fiona I'm leaving, tonight.
- "Leaving"?- What do you mean?- I'm taking Gabe.
We are leaving the Community.
I want you to come with us.
I don't have the words to describe it.
Fiona there is more.
 So much more.
What are they doing?- Fiona what do you feel?- I don't have the words to describe it.
Attention Nurturers.
Please secure your work areaand immediately report tothe newborn's nursery,to allow for securitysearch procedure.
Promptly report all sightingsat the nearest security kiosk.
Thank you.
Fiona, we got to go now!You, me and Gabe!Jonas, I can't what about my familyunit and the other new children?I can't leave them.
This the only way.
 This is theonly way to make everything okay.
I can't go.
When I get there, you'll understand.
- I'll Come back for you.
- Jonas!Come back!Now go, Jonas!Hey freeze, stop!Subject lost to the edge.
Search terminated.
And I asked him why he was out so late.
He seemed angry.
I didn't understand why,but I wanted to help him.
Then it hit me,and at first time…I can tell why you'vebeen acting this way,your injections levelsare extremely low.
I can correct this.
"Friends forever" right…?And then we will addressed what's happened.
When I went over the edge,we shouldn't have made it.
This was a miracle.
The Giver had talked about them.
He told me that I could drawstrength from the memories.
I knew, by giving them to Gabe,I could protect them.
Cut your finger and put alittle blood on this apple.
When you leave in the morning,put the apple over on the sensor.
I've been doing it for months,since worked every single time.
What has he taught you…?A dwelling is not a "home".
This the only way tomake everything okay.
Gabe is in danger.
 What they aregoing to do to him is really bad.
I want you to come with us.
When I get there, you'll understand.
I'll come back for you.
I apologize…For failing again.
I don't think you failed.
I think you succeeded.
With your plan…Ever since the girl was releasedyou haven't been the same.
I genuinely hoped Jonas would help you.
It would have fresh start, totwo of you have work together…Which is seems you have.
We will find Jonas.
Jonas, our Receiver ofMemories, lost to the Edge.
Jonas…! Jonas…!- How did they know Jonas is gone?- We must not says his names anymore.
- I will.
- You must keep quiet now, Lily.
And hippo is really "an elephant".
What I'm about to tell you, youmust never repeat to anyone.
- I don't believe Jonas is lost.
- But the ceremony of Loss…I'm sure of it.
I don't expect youto understand,but you must know thatJonas has become dangerous.
He must be stopped.
 He must not getbeyond the Triangle of Rocks.
What you want me to do?You know, Jonas,I want you to find him.
And then…I want you to lose him.
Power Depleted.
Jonas…- What are you doing…?- Asher please, let us go.
I can't.
 I'm supposed to…To what?To lose you.
Asher… if you're my friend…If you ever were my friend… canyou please somehow trust me?Trust me now.
I do trust you, Jonas.
Come on, please…Jonas…!You found him!I did.
For the good of all of us…I beg you, to finish this.
It's finished.
 It's okay…Nothing the Giver had shown me, hadprepared me for the voices in my head.
Screaming at me to stop.
But I knew that Fiona willbe punished for helping me.
Asher, for letting me go.
The only way to help them,to keep them alive…Was to get to the boundary.
If it even existed.
I strengthened Gabe with memoriesof having enough and knowing joy.
It was the memory of Fionathat kept me going.
Fiona?I've taken care of everything.
We've arranged for your release.
It will be a nice ceremony.
Now you get some rest.
- I felt things.
- What?- I know that there is something more.
- Fiona…Something missing from our lives.
No, not "missing", somethingthat has been stolenfrom me and from you.
I do not know what it is exactly.
But Jonas does.
I had felt things.
 And they were warm…And they were nice.
And they were beautiful.
I have felt things.
 I have felt things!I have felt things…!Where is the Tower, Gabe?Tower should be here…You can stop this…Stop what?If you don't want to see it, sitdown with the other elders.
Or close your eyes!Ceremony of release to elsewhere.
Come on, Fiona.
You're uncomfortable?I'm not uncomfortable, I'm afraid.
You don't have to be afraid.
You know me.
I will be very gentle, I promise.
Okay…?Her name was Rosemary.
She was my daughter.
- I loved her…- Precision of language.
I could not be more precise.
Do you know what that's like?To love someone?I do.
I cried.
I felt sorrow…I've sang, danced…I felt real joy…Then you should know better then anyone.
You have seen children starv…Yes…You've seen people stabbingeach others neck…Just for the view.
You know what it is peoples likewhen men blow each other up.
Yes…- Over a simple land, sand…- I do, I do.
- But…- And yet…And yet! You and Jonas wantto open that door again.
- Bring all that back.
- If you only could see possibilities…- But why?- Of Love!With love comes faith,comes hope…Love is just passion that can turn.
It turns into contempt! And murder!We could choose better!People are weak.
 People are selfish.
When people have the freedom to choose…They choose wrong.
Every single time.
That's a sledge…Loss… and the pain…Music, joy…These all are impossible,beautiful feeling of love.
Your son, he felt that.
That girl…- She is felted.
- That's enough.
We are living a life of shadows.
Of echoes, of fake distantwhispers of what once made us real.
Excuse me for one second, Fiona.
We must continue.
I wish I had been therewhen the memories returned.
They were the truth.
The elders and their rules were the lie.
So I do not apologize.
I knew Fiona was safe.
That I'd see her again.
And that I held thefuture there in my arms.
The Giver had led us here.
To this house…It was real.
From far behind me, fromthe place I had left…I thought I heard music too.
Perhaps it was only an echo.
But it was enough.
It would lead us all home.
