Taking place over the span of three days, five characters who live and/or work in the same building engage in personal crisises. The interconnected stories examine situations involving the five senses.

Touch is represented by a massage therapist (Gabrielle Rose) who is treating a woman (Molly Parker), while her older daughter (Nadia Litz) accidentally loses her younger pre-school daughter in the park.

The older daughter meets a voyeur (Brendan Fletcher) (vision), a professional house-cleaner (Daniel MacIvor) who has an acute sense of smell, a cake maker who has lost her sense of taste, and an older man (Phillippe Volter) who is losing his hearing.

During the course of the film each of these characters discovers an essential clue to his or her own true desire.
