Full Synopsis of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 & 2

Katniss Everdeen, her sister Prim, and her friends Finnick Odair and Gale Hawthorne all reluctantly adjust to a highly structured life in the underground District 13, which has been spearheading the rebellion in Panem. Katniss eventually agrees to act as "the Mockingjay" -a poster child for the rebellion- but only on the condition that District 13's President Alma Coin vows to grant immunity to all of the past Hunger Games tributes, including Katniss's friend Peeta Mellark and Finnick's lover Annie Cresta, and to reserve for Katniss the right to personally kill Panem's President Snow once he is captured. Tasked with starring in rebel propaganda films, called propos, Katniss is unhappily kept out of actual combat until she defiantly participates in a tragic battle involving the bombing of a hospital at District 8.

Meanwhile, Peeta is being held by the Capitol and forced to defame Katniss and the rebels on live television. During one broadcast, though, he exposes the Capitol's surprise plan to bomb District 13, thus saving many lives during the ensuing explosions but also causing the Capitol's torturers to "hijack" him, a process in which he is infused with tracker jacker venom, developing in him a deranged resentment and fear of Katniss. Soon afterward, District 13 leads a successful mission to rescue Peeta and other tributes of the most recent Games, including Annie, but Peeta immediately attempts to kill Katniss upon their reunion. Therapy improves Peeta's psychological condition over time, but he retains some memory loss and is still prone to violent outbursts toward Katniss.

District 13 hosts Finnick and Annie's wedding, and a controversial strategy proposed by Gale wins a decisive victory at District 2, readying the rebels to launch a final campaign against the Capitol itself. Katniss and her propo team are deployed on a trivial assignment to the Capitol, joined by Peeta, who is unexpectedly sent with them by President Coin; Katniss interprets this to mean that Coin, anticipating the war's end, no longer requires or trusts Katniss and now expects her to be murdered by the unstable Peeta. While filming in a purportedly safe Capitol neighborhood, the team's commander, Boggs, is killed. Taking charge, Katniss convinces the others they are on a secret mission to assassinate President Snow. Consequently, during intense urban warfare that involves Hunger Games-like monsters and ambushes, many of Katniss's teammates, including Finnick, are killed. Katniss presses on alone towards President Snow's mansion, which has been surrounded by Capitol refugee children being used as human shields to protect Snow. As Katniss reaches the mansion, a hoverplane with Capitol markings drops parachutes onto the children that explode. The rebels' combat medics, including Katniss's sister Prim, move in to help the injured children, but further parachutes explode, killing Prim and severely burning Katniss.

During her recuperation, Katniss becomes deeply depressed over her sister's death. The rebels have won the war, and Katniss confronts President Snow, who, awaiting execution, claims that Coin orchestrated Prim's death. He reminds Katniss that they agreed not to lie to each other in the past, persuasively arguing that the hoverplane airstrike could have served him no purpose. Suddenly, Katniss realizes in horror that the hoverplane attack closely resembled Gale's bombing strategy at District 2. When Katniss confronts Gale about his possible involvement, however, he merely expresses uncertainty. Katniss's suspicions grow into a conspiracy theory.

President Coin proposes an idea that leads to a majority of the surviving tributes, including Katniss (but not Peeta), voting in favor of punishing the Capitol just as the Capitol punished the Districts: by holding a final Hunger Games that will target the children of the Capitol's leaders. Before Coin can organize this event, though, the day of Snow's execution arrives, and Katniss is given the task of executing him. As she prepares to do so, Snow flashes her a smile and, making her decision, Katniss raises her bow and shoots Coin instead, killing her. Katniss immediately attempts suicide, but Peeta stops her, and she is arrested during the ensuing riot. After the riot, Snow is mysteriously found dead, Katniss is acquitted of Coin's murder by reason of insanity, and she is relocated to the ruins of her home, District 12. Months later, having largely recovered from his brainwashing, Peeta and some other District 12 natives also return there. Katniss embraces her love for Peeta, recognizing her need for his hope and strength, in contrast to Gale, who has the same fire she already finds in herself. Together, they write a book filled with the stories of previous tributes of the Hunger Games in order to preserve the memory of those who died.

Twenty years later, in the epilogue, Katniss and Peeta are married and now have two children. The Hunger Games are over for good, but Peeta still suffers trauma from his "hijacking," and Katniss dreads the day her children learn about their parents' involvement in both the Games and the war. When she feels distressed, Katniss plays a comforting but repetitive "game," reminding herself of every good thing she has ever seen someone do. The series ends with Katniss' somber reflection that "there are much worse games to play."
