Eero’s career as an author is spiraling down: he just can’t get started with his new novel. The ambitious actor Pihla is about to get her international break. Neither of them is willing to sacrifice their career even though their relationship is doing worse than ever. Void is a tragic and kooky comedy-drama about the price of success and the agony of failure, and about situations where your partner just doesn’t get it.
