The main plot is that Jonas lives in a community that seems almost perfect until he is chosen to be the Receiver (of memories telling what life was like before this utopia was established). Once he is Receiver, he learns from the Giver what alternatives exist, and what's wrong with his community, until at last he steals a baby (who could be a Receiver) and runs away.
