16-year-old Billie’s reluctant path to independence is accelerated when her mother reveals plans for gender transition and their time together becomes limited to Tuesday afternoons. Filmed over the course of a year, once a week, every week – only on Tuesdays – these unique filmmaking rules bring a rare authenticity to this emotionally charged story of desire, responsibility and transformation.

- " Sophie Hyde's breathtaking feature debut 52 Tuesdays explores the boundaries of both cinema and gender identity in a seamless way. " – Stephen A. Russell (The New Daily, Australia)
- " Well-drawn and well-acted, this microbudget Australian pic deserves to be seen by everyone. Genuine and realistic, this is empathetic without kowtowing to overwrought trans tragedy: Adelaide Buyers Club this ain't. " – Calum Baker (One Room With A View)
