I forget the source but I heard mention from a podcast that all stories ever told boil down to the same basic formula. Character climbs up tree, people throw things at character, character climbs down, having changed. The perfect representation of this is Die Hard. John McClane climbs up big building, bullets are shot at him, character climbs down from building, having changed.
