A film’s storyline entails a series of events that are recorded and presented in chronological order. In contrast, a film's plot provides an overview of the events that make up the storyline (Brown, 2018). By systematically arranging the events in the film, the plot can divulge the events' dramatic and thematic relevance.PlotThe ancient ring which belonged to the Dark Lord Sauron is found after being lost for centuries. The ring is found by a hobbit named Bilbo, who hands it over to his nephew Frodo.
3Gandalf then assesses the ring and finds out that it is the same ring that belonged to the Dark Lord Sauron. For Dark Lord’s reign to come to an end, they must destroy the ring (Jackson, 2001). The plot highlights the dramatic and thematic relevance of these events to the development of the story/film.StorylineThe movie commences with a recap of the history of the ring. The ring that belonged to the Dark Lord Sauron was the most powerful of all the twenty rings that ever existed. Among thetwenty rings included three rings which belonged to the elves, seven rings which belonged to the dwarves, nine rings which belonged to the men, and the most powerful of all that belong to the Dark Lord Sauron. The one ring that belonged to the Dark Lord Sauron was considered powerfulthan all the other 19 rings since the Dark Lord Sauron had placed his evil and desire for power and dominance into it. The elves and humans team up with one purpose of defeating the Dark Lord Sauron and his evil ring. The elves, through their unity with humans they manage to defeat the Dark Lord Sauron. However, the son of the King of Gondor fails to destroy the evil ring. The ring first falls into the hands of Gollum, who later losses it to Bilbo the hobbit five centuries later(Jackson, 2001).
