When Alice launches her website ’52 Words for Love’, posting a new synonym for love each week for a year, she inadvertently sendsa ripple through her social network and discovers more about relationships than she initially anticipated.

Combining documentary interviews with narrative drama, 52 Words for Love offers a humorous, moving meditation on what it means to grapple with the intricacies and vagaries of intimacy.
