Dude With A Problem

The 3 elements of a Dude With A Problem are:
1) An innocent hero who is dragged into a mess without asking for it — or even aware of how he got involved.
2) A sudden event that thrusts our innocent(s) into the world of hurt — and it comes without warning.
3) A life or death battle is at stake — and the continued existence of an individual, family, group, or society is in question.
