A Yellow Eye Without Its Way Twice-Told depicts a young man watching an older man clean his rifle while an aging horse snorts and paces in a corral behind him.  Abandoning narrative conventions and plot-advancing devices typically found in Hollywood movies, the film has no orderly progression from problem to resolution and denouement.  Instead, beginning, middle, and end fall away so that there is only a single event until the action is interrupted by an abrupt reverie. The use of continuous back and forth shots place the emphasis on the present tense as a substitute for plot. However, this action is fractured by old film footage of a falcon in flight.
