When Alice (Stacey Iseman), a woman suffering from cancer, sets out to post one synonym for love every week for a year on a site she's created that she calls "52 Words for Love," she inadvertently sends a gentle ripple through her social network and discovers more about relationships than she imagined.

This film is best described as an experimental narrative feature film, as it mixes documentary interviews with narrative drama, and actors with real life people to tell the story of intimacy through any age, gender, religion or ethnicity.

  • 5 stars "Don't miss this exquisite film that draws you into the complex emotional lives of its characters one finely-crafted and intimate moment at a time. The cinematography is spare and focused, so you feel as though you might be just in the kitchen or sitting on the end of the couch with the characters, considering what matters in their lives. Even in achingly painful moments, 52 Words never lets you forget that the capacity to repair and to forgive could just be a heartbeat away."
  • 5 stars "I love this little gem. Gentle, quirky and beautiful – the acting is superb and the production quality is amazing. The soundtrack alone is worth the price of admission. If you're looking for a warm, thoughtful and beguiling film, this is it!"
  • 5 stars "This film creates an atmosphere of intimacy and space. It's mesmerizing and over before you want it too, which I think is the best way. So I watched it again. :)"
