Michael Beach Tobit Writer
PREMISE: Tobit is an observant Dutch Jew living in Amsterdam. He lives correctly, giving alms and burying the dead. In spite of his good works, Tobit is struck blind. Concurrent with Tobit’s story is that of Sarah, daughter of one of Tobit’s distant relative, whose seven successive husbands are each killed by a demon on their wedding night. When Tobit and Sarah pray to God for deliverance, God sends the angel Raphael to act as intercessor. Tobit regains his sight, and Sarah marries Tobit’s son Tobias. The story closes with Tobit’s thanksgiving and an account of his death. This is actually a Jewish short story possibly dating from Persian times in some Bibles is the book of Tobit, named after the father of its hero.

Reviewing Act One
By the way, I dont want you to think that you are witnessing a disaster just because the paradigm chart has been violated. Never forget that writing is a process and the paradigm chart is a tool. This is how writing works. For all your best-developed plans, things can still changeand the more you are a forest person, the more they are going to change.
Since the screenplay is such an efficient medium, I seldom prefer to flesh out a script unless it is absolutely necessary. I dont think thats the case here.
There are two options: to flesh out the script so that the kidnapping does, in fact, occur later. Or to keep it where it is and create a new plot point.
