The Ballad of Songbirds: Synopsis
Years before he would become Panem’s despotic President, 18-year-old Coriolanus Snow is the final hope for his fading lineage, a once-proud family that has fallen from grace in a post-war Capitol,” according to the synopsis. “With the 10th annual Hunger Games just around the corner, Snow is concerned when he is assigned to teach Lucy Gray Baird, the girl tribute from impoverished District 12.” Snow believes he can turn the odds in his favour after Lucy Gray commands all of Panem’s attention by defiantly singing at the reaping ceremony. Snow and Lucy’s struggle against time to survive will finally expose who is a songbird and who is a snake, uniting their instincts for theatrics and newfound political knowledge.”
