In a perfect world where there is no conflict, racism or sickness, every member of society has a specific role, and 16-year-old Jonas is selected to be the Receiver of Memories.

Additional Notes:

Adapted from Lois Lowry's 1994 Newbery winning book.

Jeff Bridges has long been attached to play the title role, who is the most important person in the Community; he bought the rights to "The Giver" two decades ago, originally envisioning it as a vehicle for his father Lloyd (Daily Variety, 11/7/12).
