There are no stupid questions.

A setting is the place where something happens.
A plot is the story of what happens.

Got it now?
Can anybody explain this better?

I can explain it better.

A plot is the story of what happens.
A setting is the place where something happens.

Just kidding, but I can use a dictionary:

plot: Any scheme, stratagem, secret design, or plan, of a complicated nature, adapted to the accomplishment of some purpose, usually a treacherous and mischievous one; a conspiracy; an intrigue;

setting:  arrangement of scenery and properties to represent the place where a play or movie or rpg is enacted -- The arrangement of performers and properties on a stage for a theatrical production or before the camera in a film. -- A stage setting. --  Physical environment; surroundings.
