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.

But in more subtle character-driven movies, the kind of fare independents do so well, the antagonist can be fuzzier and harder to nail down. It may have a shifting face, or it may be a negative aspect of the protagonist.
The easier the movie is to understand, the clearer the antagonist isin big Hollywood action movies, for example, its usually a matter of good guy v. bad guy. And theres never a doubt about who is who.
And there must be something that stops the hero from reaching the goalan obstacle. Most often this obstacle is a person, or has a personal embodiment, called the villainor the antagonist.
The hero is your storys main character, then, and s/he must want something as a result of things that happen (and happen very quickly) after your story begins. The hero has a goal.
