Conservative Trope Examples

  • A wealthy couple's mansion is falsely targeted and ransacked by activists who believe it should have been seized by the government when in fact there was no corruption because it was in the innocent wife's name. Further, the innocent wife intended to donate the $75 million mansion to charity and move to the USA with her husband to escape her father-in-law who is corrupt. But, an every-day accountant greedily tries to steal the $75 million for himself and kills the wife when she finds out. The husband and father-in-law are aggressively targeted by law enforcement and later also depicted as sympathetic victims as the husband loved his wife very much and the father-in-law -- although corrupt -- was absolved of the murder and depicted as very loving of his daughter-in-law and supported her decision to donate the $75 million mansion he gave her.
