Wow this one won’t be easy. It’s a very blurry photo! It even seems like it’s a picture taken of a screen. Were you watching a TV show? Where was it shot or made? That would help a lot.
If you have other pictures, try to add them to this discussion, the more the better.

Then again, you can learn a lot just by looking at the leaves. A long stem branching out with three leaflets on each sub-leaf, and that strange seed/flower pod at the top. I think this might be Polynesian arrowroot.
To check and make sure, it would help to dig out the root: if I’m right, it should be a roundish tuber (it’s part of the yam family). Not sure if edible though.

True. But you should give the botanical name, @Fatzo, Tacca leontopetaloides. I think this one gets a lot of different names.September 3, 2022 at 3:33 pm Reply
Hi, Thanks for the feedback. Yes, it’s a photo from my friends phone. She was asking if I knew what it was. I said we need a few pics, especially of the leaves and the full plant.She said the lighter coloured parts are pods more like broad bean type. All I know about the garden she helps in, is that it was full of Persian plants!
