Plot: "Frampton burning slowly his an nostalgia black and white photograph who his taken on a hot plate." Yes, whatever that means.
Actually, the "plot" is very simple: photographs slowly burn on a hot plate while memories of the photos and their subjects are explained to the audience. This makes it a story of memory and family, as well as a bit of poetry... and something of an autobiography of Hollis Frampton for those who want to know more.
One interesting aspect is that the narration, despite presumably being the words of Frampton, is allegedly done by filmmaker Michael Snow. Snow is possibly even more notable than Frampton, often considered one of the greatest Canadian filmmakers, alongside Atom Egoyan and David Cronenberg.
