Drowning is one of Tris' fears and she is under the stimulation but she does not know that. When she sees her reflection in the water, she realizes that it is a stimulation and understands that her fear is not real. Thus, she is able to break the glass open.

In order for one to conquer his fears, one must understand himself through his self-confidence.

Our definition:
Language and imagery that affects the audience's perspective by persuading them in a certain conception.
Background Music
- Gets louder as the scene gets more suspenseful
- Stops when it seems like Tris' going to die.
"...often provides a tone or an emotional attitude toward the story and/or the characters depicted. In addition, background music often foreshadows a change in mood" (Marshall 1).

Glass Breaking
- Sounds delicate at first but gets louder and is it gets louder, the music gets louder.

"This shows the upper half of the body. The shot is taken from the above the head to lower chest" ("Visual Literacy How Do I Make Meaning" 1).
Eye- level
: allows the audience to understand the character and their situation (Camera Shots, Angles and Movement, Lighting, Cinematography and Mise En Scene).
in the beginning - audience see Tris in the tank yelling for help
throughout the scene - when Tris is about to drown

: "makes a character look more powerful" (Camera Shots, Angles and Movement, Lighting, Cinematography and Mise En Scene).

shows that Tris is going to drown any minute
She is drowning in her own fear.
When Tris sees her reflection in the water, she realizes that her fear isn't real and is able to break open the tank.
