The only way to finish something
is to start it first
The only way to find a fig
is to look in the branches of a fig tree
The only way to get a peanut
is to go to the patch and dig one up
The only way to find a frog
is to kiss a prince
Plot is a man who lies on the sofa and makes plans for the future, but doesn’t start anything. Until one day a dog runs up to him and Plot decides to make a film.
The protagonist in Plot’s film is a man who lies on the sofa making plans for the future, but starts nothing. Until one day a dog runs up to him….
Looking for a fig is an experimental artist’s film that tries to look like a real film. A philosophical, unwieldy no-budget film about a search.
