FILL THE VOID is a light comedy of manners from Israel. It has a strong moral worldview from a Jewish viewpoint.

The story focuses on 18-year-old Shira, whose older sister has just tragically died, leaving a young infant son. Her sister’s death puts Shira’s own arranged marriage to a young man on hold, but everyone is impressed by how well Shira takes care of her sister’s baby.

A year passes, and Shira’s mother finds out that her son-in-law, Yochay, may move to Europe to marry another woman. As God Himself says in the Bible, Genesis 2:18, “It is not good for the man to be alone.”

Devastated, the mother tries to figure out a way to keep Yochay and her grandson in Israel. Her solution? Have Shira marry Yochay! But, does Shira WANT to marry Yochay? Sure enough, she doesn’t.
