Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), both experienced life and death, got all the treatment the 74th Hunger Games champion could enjoy, but their relationship became awkward, and Kate Ness couldn’t let go of his former boyfriend Gail (Liam Hemsworth Liam Hemsworth), and even wanted to go away with him. Katniss and Peeta are becoming more and more popular with the people, and the fact that they pretend to be a couple irritated President Snow (Donald Sutherland). Hoffman Philip Seymour Hoffman (Philip Seymour Hoffman) launched a 25-year “world-class limited competition”, requiring each of the previous male and female champions from 12 districts to participate, aiming to kill Katniss. In order to protect Katniss, Peeta replaced Black Miqu (Woody Harrelson) in the competition, and a pair of “lovers” embarked on the journey again. During the event, the two made allies from different districts. At the same time, Peeta continued to show her true feelings to Katniss, and her attitude towards Peeta also changed. Unfortunately, things are not as they imagined, and only conspiracy awaits them.
