Everywhere are stories. There stories in different genres, different characters and ways of telling stories.
If you analyse the most stories you can see they are based on the monomyth. For example The Matrix, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings Lion King and the films all use the structure of the monomyth. Joseph Campbell‘s monomyth or the hero’s journey is described in the book “The Hero with a Thousand Faces“.
