The people who possessed these abilitie were known as benders. In order to keep balance between the four nations, an Avatar was born, a reincarnated being that could control all four elements.

Aang ran away from his destiny and ended up trapped frozen in ice, until hundred years later two Water Tribe children free him from his slumber.

Having been freed and finally awake, Aang has to travel the world to master the four elements, in order to defeat Fire Lord Ozai (Cliff Curtis), to restore balance to the four nations and to end the war.
