The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1

Inciting Event: Katniss is taken to see the ruins of District 12.

First Plot Point: Peeta appears on Capitol state television, prompting Katniss to accept her role as the Mockingjay.

First Pinch Point: President Snow orders a hospital in District 8 to be bombed.

Midpoint: The Capitol bombs District 13.

Second Pinch Point: President Snow leaves the bombing area littered with white roses.

Third Plot Point: The power to the Capitol is shut off, leaving it vulnerable. A rescue mission is sent to retrieve the remaining victors, including Peeta.

Climax: The power returns to the Capitol, leaving the rescue mission members trapped in the middle of the city.

Climactic Moment: They escape and bring the victors back to District 13. Katniss is reunited with Peeta, only to have him try to kill her.

Resolution: Katniss wakes up in the medical facility, where she is told that Peeta has essentially been brainwashed into wanting to kill her. They begin the process to reverse the effects by keeping him in isolation.
