    Abstract

    The hero's journey is all about change. The protagonist should almost never be the same person at the end of the narrative as at the beginning. Any compelling character must learn and grow over the course of their journey. This internal journey is called the transformational arc. While they may transform physically and go on a literal journey, it is really a change in the hero's psychology that signals the completion of their arc. I aim to discover to what extent the field of psychology relates to how films are structured and resolved, paying particular attention to the protagonist's journey.
