It takes place in a Constructed World divided into nations based around the elements of water, earth, fire, and air. Some people from each nation, called "benders", have the ability to control the element on which their nation is based on.

However, one character, called the Avatar, is incarnated into each of the nations in an endless cycle, and he or she has the ability to bend all four elements.
