Overview

Five characters serve as metaphors for the five senses in this drama about human relationships from Canadian filmmaker Jeremy Podeswa. Ruth Gabrielle Rose works as a massage therapist; one day while giving a rubdown to Anna Molly Parker, Ruth's teenage daughter Rachel Nadia Litz takes Anna's toddler daughter for a stroll in the park. However, Rachel loses track of the child and she's soon lost. While searching for her, Rachel meets Rupert Brendan Fletcher, a voyeur who teaches her about the pleasures of observing others. Meanwhile, Robert Daniel MacIvor is a professional house cleaner with an unusually keen sense of smell. Convinced he can smell love, he starts to set up meetings with all of his former lovers to see if he can sniff out any feelings for him -- and, if not, find out why they stopped caring for him. Robert's friend Rona Mary-Louise Parker works as a baker but has no sense of taste, a severe occupational hazard. She also has romantic problems, thanks to the arrival of Roberto Marco Leonardi, a man she met on a recent vacation in Italy. Finally, Richard Philippe Volter is an eye doctor who is losing his hearing. While this situation has left him horribly depressed, he meets a woman who helps him feel better about life.
