This pitch black comic short from formidable filmmaking team Traces of Nut took away the top prize at the 2013 48Hours film competition. A little girl (Nova Waretini-Hewison, daughter of director Dean Hewison) is saving money for a special cause. She gets inventive and provokes her gullible parents (Richard Falkner and Aidee Walker) into filling up the swear jar. Flush with cash, she solves her (surprising) problem. Director Hewison shot the story from the girl's point of view, so adults are only seen from the neck down. The Sleeping Plot also won Best Director and Cinematography, with Waretini-Hewison taking Best Actress.
I fell for that kid.– 48Hours film competition judge Scott Walker on the performance of Nova Waretini-Hewison, The Dominion Post, 17 July 2013
