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.

Lets now use our work sheet to develop the structure of our story. As I work this out, understand that there are many ways to develop this material. You may have much better ideas than I do.
So far, so goodwe have an interesting idea here, the First Lady is in a bad marriage and wants a divorce. And then she is kidnapped and held for ransom.
Our first decision must be this: who is the main character? Lets say the First Lady. What does she want? A divorce.
How do we structure this into a screenplay?
