"Theme"

Scriptwriting & Script Reading in the UK:

"All stories have underlying ideas and subtexts which can be expressed in a basic form of theme. Greed. Lust. Death. Love. Power. Corruption. Revenge. Family. War. And so on. Of course, having evidence of one or more of these ideas doesn’t necessarily represent a theme in itself; how the story is resolved through character and plot reveals what you’re saying about the theme (whether you’re aware of it or not)."
