“Save the Cat” by Blake Snyder has ten genres that make up the plot of all popular movies. In this series, I go into each of those genres and explain the basics of what the story may look like. 

The Rites of Passage stories involve life problems and how the characters overcome them.

What sort of popular movies have you seen that have a rite of passage story?
