The Hunger Games return with such a sequel twist that you can't believe writer Suzanne Collins didn't think of film when writing. Catching Fire builds up with all types of subversive messaging which is interesting but also brings into relief the limitations of the genre and film.
Roger hoped that he and his widowed father would become a family again. While on a visit to Roger's orphange, his father makes an empty promise: He'd return... if the Angels win the pennant. Roger prays for the Angels to win, and begins to see literal angels assisting the team.
