What is the link between Emile Deschamps, Monsieur de Fontgibu and plum pudding? At least that all three come together in this short film. The film - set in North-western Europe in the early 21st century - is based on the true story of the nineteenth-century French writer Emile Deschamps, who only ate a serving of plum pudding three times in his life, but each time met a certain Mr. Fontgibu. How great a coincidence can this be?
