Thirteen different black-and-white photographs are laid down on a hotplate, one by one. As each slowly burn and melt up one by one, stories and memories of the different subject are provided by narration, written in first-person to imply the filmmaker is speaking. Subjects include a man on a bed, a smoking man, a shot through a window, etc.

The stories being told about the photos are played after the photo is shown. The narrator tells the story behind a photo of a metronome but on screen is a photo of a room. The metronome photo is shown only after the story about its creation is finished being told. This creates a sense of temporal disjointedness so the viewer is simultaneously hearing the future while experiencing the past. See more
