WARNING: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are advised that the following program may contain images and/or audio of deceased persons

Nan, of Aboriginal Australian and Irish descent, has kept a photo album of dead family members since the passing of her mother many years ago. Every time a family member dies, Nan and her granddaughter Fuzzy take a photo of the dead and place it in the album.

Nan meets trouble every time a new photo is taken. Her younger sister Aunty Min believes this morbid European tradition is culturally inappropriate. But in the end, all that trouble Nan has come to blows over may bring the family together.
