What makes you care?

In his talk, 'The Clues to a Good Story', Andrew Stanton suggests that, when we hear a story, we subconsciously want to 'work for our meal', that we want to deduce, be provoked, be stimulated like in real life. From his experience, a good story begins with is a promise that it'll be worth your time, and the ingredients are anticipation, uncertainty, and infusing the gift of wonder.

He quotes:
"There isn't anyone you couldn't learn to love, once you've heard their story."

What makes you care? The story itself, or how it's told?
