The Last Website on Screenwriting You'll Ever Need

Golden Fleece

The 3 elements of a Golden Fleece are:
1) A road spanning oceans, time — or across the street — so long as it demarcates growth. It often includes a “Road Apple” that stops the trip cold.
2) A team or a buddy the hero needs to be guided along the way. Usually, it’s those who represent the things the hero doesn’t have: skill, experience, or attitude.
3) A prize that’s sought and is something primal: going home, securing a treasure, or re-gaining a birthright.
