Not Everyone Lives Happily Ever After. (Will You?)

Movies and stories have a very specific and intentional format. We have the hero who’s living his or her life. The hero is good but he/she has a weakness which holds him or her back. A disaster occurs! The disaster is caused by a villain, who must be defeated. Now the hero must go on a journey into the unknown to save the day. The journey is fraught with danger, challenge and at times the outcome is doubtful. At the darkest moment the hero meets a guide who teaches him or her how to overcome their weakness and defeat the villain. The hero ultimately battles the villain and wins by overcoming his or her weakness.
