This is about as close as Brakhage ever came to melodrama, the word means "song drama", and the soundtrack here is a collage by composer Joel Haertling, using fragments from Stephen Foster songs. Brakhage is seen, along with young children, in a house filmed largely from fixed camera positions -unusual for Brakhage- and he contrasts the apparent stability of domestic architecture, the kid´s free play (made more rapid and ephemeral through fast motion), and his own ponderous form, in which his body movements suggest weight and age.
Phrases of Stephen Foster, set to music by Joel Heartling, are set to film in this autobiographical piece: a solitary female voice, occasionally joined by a chorus, sings phrases of sorrow as we watch a solitary man in shadows in an unadorned house: he stretches out, he picks his feet, he walks across a room, he rocks in a chair. Occasionally he watches two young children at play; the film sometimes speeds up. Handwritten words, like "dark void" and "waiting longing," cross the screen. Film and phrases often come in short bursts. Outdoor it looks gray and cold.
