João, a middle-class filmmaker who lives in the city of São Paulo, goes through a series of encounters with people like his long-time friend Irene; his boyfriend Álvaro; Matias, a young man he meets in the subway and has a sexual experience with, among others, some acquainted, some unknown. These encounters affect him and slowly begin to reveal a play of time frames which blends together life and creative process, memory and the present.

Director Caetano Gotardo has stated about the film in an interview: "Your bones and your eyes is my second feature film, but the process of making it started even before I shot my first one, The Moving Creatures (2013). In 2009, right after shooting my short film The Japanese Boy, I wrote the first notes for a project that didn't have a title yet, but seemed like a natural way of going deeper into some territories I'd started to explore with that film as a writer, director, actor and editor. It had to do with people meeting, talking, relating to each other, noticing their specific ways of being in this world. It had to do with memory and present time, living and creating, and how those things can blend. It also had to do with having a body and being able to move it, desiring, feeling connected and feeling out of place - all that in a very concrete way, related to our daily lives and our daily actions, but also with a deep belief in the inventive possibilities of cinema. Since those first written notes, for nine years, that project became very present in my life, with more and more notes, and fragments of scenes, and video experiments, and conversations with some very good friends who accepted to take part in the creative process, and bits of choreography rehearsed in my room in the middle of the night or while walking down the street. As I continued to work on other films, this one kept growing, slowly, with no clear shape, but never disappearing. We chose from the beginning to work as a very small, attentive and collaborative cast and crew. When we finally decided to shoot the film, that elusive shape suddenly seemed to become very evident, as a result of our accumulated experiences through those nine years and also as a response to the time we're living now, in our country, in our city, in our homes."
