When Ken Jacobs, Bob Fleischner and Jack Smith were studying camera techniques at CUNY night school in the mid-1950s, Jacobs met Smith through the pair's mutual friend Fleishner. Though Fleischner and Smith would eventually part ways, Jacobs was stunned to learn that in October of 1989 the pair died within a week of one another. In this feature length film, Jacobs responds to his loss by adapting the 1990 Nervous System performance piece "Luminous Threnody."
