Plot, as the sequence of events, can be structured in different ways. For example, flashback can be used to propel the narrative in a different direction.
Nonetheless, plot contains 1. an exposition in which character and setting are introduced 2. the rising action in which conflict(s) develops. 3. the climax, that is, the point of highest emotional intensity (e.g. the fight scene in a movie) 4. falling action in which conflicts come to nearly an end 5. the denouement, or resolution of conflicts(s).
