"In a totalitarian state, a group of children specially bred and trained to be members of the ruling class and taught nothing of right and wrong but only what is 'divergent' and 'nondivergent', leave a city killed by germ warfare. Mary has told them tales of an imaginary land, a sort of Garden of Eden, quite different from everything they have known, yet seemingly half remembered. John, the natural leader of the group, partly believes in it but Edward the weaker character although the eldest, cannot so readily break with past training in the rejection of everything but official teaching."
