* This is the plot of ''{{Precious}}''. Just when you think Precious has taken a single step out of the muck, life sends her crashing down three whole flights. It gets so bad that the character's otherwise minor victory at the end [[spoiler: emancipating herself from her mother]] is downright triumphant.

** Charles Xavier. When the movie starts, he's a friendly, happy-go-lucky, idealistic Oxford grad whose only interests are protecting his foster sister, studying genetics, drinking yards of beer and picking up coeds. His initial reaction to meeting other mutants is a puppyish eagerness to find others like him, as well as a gung-ho enthusiasm to [[TheyFightCrime work with a superhuman team to fight evil.]] During the climax, [[spoiler:he gets smacked around in a variety of ways, including telepathically experiencing Shaw's gruesome death at Magneto's hands, getting shot in the spine, and having the US government, his best friend, and his sister all turn against him. By the finale, [[HumansAreBastards his government is trying to hunt him down]], his [[FaceHeelTurn best friend is preparing for a war against humans]], and he's crippled for life in a wheelchair.]] We know from future installments that he never quite abandons his ideals, but he's frighteningly subdued and obviously much more cautious about who knows his secrets.

* The titular character of the 1918 film ''Film/StellaMaris'' was born paralyzed, [[GildedCage never allowed to leave her mansion]], and kept extremely sheltered to the point where she didn't even know of starvation and war until adulthood. After [[ThrowingOffTheDisability a surgery lets her walk]], Stella begins becoming more independent. She learns of all the bad things in the world and learns that her love John is married (though he isn't in love with his wife). This is too much for Stella and [[DespairEventHorizon sends her into a suicidal despair]].

*** And then comes ''Film/{{Logan}}'', by which point mutants are just about extinct, everything Charles did for them throughout the series having [[AllForNothing come to naught]]. He personally killed seven of his beloved X-Men with his psychic powers when he had a seizure. He now lives in a metal tank, where Logan keeps him drugged up so he won't endanger anyone else. Throughout the film he sees people he cares about hurt and killed, accidentally harms a lot of innocent people with another seizure, and finally is killed by Logan's EvilTwin, whom he believes to be Logan.

* Pretty much everything that happens to Lilya in ''Film/LilyaFourEver''. She starts off being abandoned by her mother, who leaves her to fend for herself while she emigrates to America, and her aunt is abusive as hell. And from there, it goes FromBadToWorse for her, as [[spoiler:she's betrayed by her best friend, raped by several boys she knows, forced to become a prostitute in order to support herself, and then falls prey to a "boyfriend" by the name of Andrei who wants to take her to Sweden to start a new life, only to sell poor Lilya into sexual slavery once she gets there. Things get so bad for Lilya that when Volodya, the younger boy she formed a bond with before going to Sweden and who is now an angel following his suicide, gives her the world as her Christmas present, she rejects it, as the CrapsackWorld she lived in has done its level best to put her through pure hell, and her only escape from this world is suicide]].
