What happens when veins, gray hair, spots take over our bodies, and fertility has long since left the womb? Memories of a burning body is a lyrical portrait that intertwines and freely recreates the lives of Ana (68), Patricia (69) and Mayela (71) who allow us to sneak into their most secret intimacy to explore how they live and enjoy their sexuality when the rest of the world thinks it no longer exists. Does desire still exist? Does pleasure diminish? What changes?
