uncomforting reassurance

I just saw an ad for… my gosh, I was laughing so hard I missed the title. It’s some Nick Cage end-of-days movie. Real over-the-top disaster stuff, with a strong sense of cliche. But it ended with a scene where Cage is huddled in some corner with his young son.

SON: Are we gonna die?

CAGE: I will never let that happen.

The definition of a failure-bound protagonist: one whose successful show of power depends on he and his son never dying.
