Santiago is a shepherd who travels across his country with his noble sheeps.
Santiago starts to have reoccurring dreams of him at the pyramid finding lots of treasure. He goes to a person who can tell him what this means, and soon finds out he must follow this dream and go to the pyramids.
CALL TO ADVENTURE
CROSSING THE THRESHOLD
Santiago soon meets one of his most important mentors, the alchemist. He tells the boy he must believe in his dream, so Santiago joins a caravan and crosses the desert to Africa.
TEST, CHALLENGES AND ENEMIES
One important challenge/test Santiago has is when the boy from the shop robs him from his money. Santiago now has no money but must continue to go on. The alchemist is his mentor who helps him to continue going on his journey.
You stole all my money!
Santiago has the greatest reward of all when he reaches the pyramid and knows exactly where his treasure is.
Santiago knows his life will be content with his true love Fatima, so he finishes his journey and returns home to Fatima with his treasure.
