in film, a plot device that has no specific meaning or purpose other than to advance the story; any situation that motivates the action of a film either artificially or substantively.
Originally coined by Alfred Hitchcock, based on a story where this device was used in a story set on a Scottish train.
(sometimes called a McGuffin)
