Since her father died in a mine explosion, Katniss Everdeen has been the one to provide her family with food.  To get that food, she has to leave District 12 - despite government orders to the contrary - to hunt and gather whatever she can find.

While she is hunting and gathering in an adjacent forest - which is not part of District 12 - Katniss meets another teen who is in the same predicament.  Gale Hawthorne's father died in the same explosion, and Gale must also hunt and gather food for his mother and siblings.

In this scene - a still-shot from the film version of The Hunger Games - we see Katniss (portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence) deliberately disregarding The Capitol's orders to stay inside District 12.
