ZIG ZAG is the odyssey of three eccentric cafe owners who, bursting with initiative, decide to open a bistro in a location no one else has thought of. We come upon them under a parachute, newly landed in the remotest desert, proud to have finally left the competition in the dust.
But dust is only one of their problems, as our dynamic entrepreneurs face the challenge of creating a menu in this parched and desolate setting. Nearing desperation, they are at last saved by the appearance off egg laying !izards. Today's special: OMELETTES ! That matter settled, their next difficulty proves to be a serious lack of customers. No problem for this self-sufficient trio who, using their already-evident stores of imagination, become their own zany clientele.
