For example this, let’s study the movie adaptation of The Godfather to see how the principle characters give rise to the construction of the movie.
The central characters are:
- VITO CORLEONE: Getting old mafia don with three sons. A tricky immigrant Sicilian, he now goals of taking his enterprise legit. He is an ethical man in an immoral world: he loves his household and worries concerning the sleazy enterprise of drug dealing.

- FREDO: The center son, a weak idiot.
- MICHAEL: The youngest son, a battle hero, all-American (with a WASP girlfriend), very sensible, loves his father however would not need to work within the household enterprise.
These 4 characters do not actually offer you a movie construction, however what if you happen to add the next:
- SOLOZZO: A drug vendor who needs to construct his personal empire. He wants the leverage of an enormous participant — Vito Corleone — however he is too formidable.
So this is your plot:
- Solozzo (too formidable) asks Vito to companion with him within the drug commerce.
- Vito (the person of morals) politely refuses.
- Sonny (the hothead) speaks out of line.
- Solozzo (too formidable) thinks he could make a cope with Sonny, and tries to kill Vito, inserting Sonny in energy.
- Fredo (the weak idiot) cannot defend his father.
- Vito (the robust immigrant Sicilian) survives 5 bullets within the chest.
- Michael (who loves his father) goes to see Vito within the hospital.
- Solozzo (too formidable) plans to kill Vito within the hospital.
- Michael (the sensible one) outwits the assassins and saves his father.
- Michael (the sensible one, who loves his father) plans to avenge Vito and restore order and energy to the household enterprise.
- Michael (the battle hero) goes to kill Solozzo.
- Solozzo (too formidable) falls for the entice and will get killed.
- Michael (the sensible one) flees the nation.
- Michael (the all-American) hides in Sicily, the place he learns to embrace his heritage.
- Sonny (the hothead) flies right into a rage over the abuse of his sister, falls right into a entice, and will get killed.
