  • What!
  • Rising Action
  • Seahaven Island is a town in a huge dome tv set in Hollywood. Truman doesn't know it, but he is the star on live tv. Everyone around him, including his friend Marlon, his wife Meryl, and his "mother" are actors. Christof is the producer of the show and he has many assistants on the background duty. His life is like ours, just everything including the people are fake.
  • Climax
  • Truman and a girl he likes, Lauren (Sylvia) were at a dance when they decide to go to the beach to get away from everyone. Lauren tries to tell Truman what is going on, but gets taken away by actors controlling the show and keeping him away from danger and, escaping. 
  • Falling Action 
  • OH NO!!!
  • When Truman is driving, the radio from the real world cuts into the radio in his car, explaining his every move. Then when he walks into a building , he takes the elevator but finds out that it was a backstage set and actors try and get him out of there. He drives around town with his wife and the actors planned a nuclear leak so he wouldn't drive all the way to the edge of the set.
  • Resolution 
  • Truman goes missing and Christof sends a search team looking for him. They find him sailing away trying to get out of Seahaven Island and to Figi.
  • Christof tried everything to get him back so he wouldn't find the edge of the TV set/dome. He made a storm so he would get scared and turn back, that didn't work, he sent huge waves and ended up knocking Truman out of the boat capsizing it, and Truman took a few minutes to get up, but he eventually continued and came across the stair case into the real world. 
  • When Truman was walking up the stair case to the real world, Christof stopped him and told him the truth about his life. Truman was eager to get out and explore what was outside of the tv set, and just get out of his fake life that he exited the dome and got to see Sylvia. Everything that Christof said Truman luckily did not believe and he left Christof in sorrow because his years of a successful 24/7 tv show was gone.
  • Hello Truman, this is Christof speaking, I would like to say a few things. You were born on tv, you can die on tv, you are entertainment to the world, don't stop it now...
