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.

“Hero” in the sense I am using it here means “main character” or protagonist (not Hercules or Robin Hood). Every movie has one—almost. There are a few “ensemble movies” in which many characters appear to share the spotlight (The Breakfast Club, for example), but upon analysis even these usually are shown to have a central character whose concerns (goals) drive the story.

But not quite.

The Hollywood movie has evolved into a story about a hero. This, of course, meshes nicely with the fact that Hollywood is star-driven. A movie star plays a hero, and there you have it.

Goal + Obstacle = Conflict
