Is it alright to say that a story consists in doing something?
For example, if I say "The first part of the story is about..." and then, once I've explained that, I explain the other one saying "The other part of the story consists in defeating criminal organisations..." for example, would it be okay?
The idea is that in the story, the protagonists defeat these criminal organisations.
Some people use "alright" but it is considered by many to be nonstandard. The two-word version "all right" is safer.
I would not use "consists in" here. It usually is "consists of" and it means "made up of".
To avoid repeating "is about" in the second you could use "deals with".
