A theme is...

a broad idea, message, or moral of a story, or the main focus of a text, paper, image, piece of artwork, or performance. The message or focus may be about life, society, or human nature. Themes often explore timeless and universal ideas and are almost always implied rather than stated explicitly. Another way of thinking about theme is that it is a main idea plus a critical perspective of or on that main idea.
