Description

Hadas Yaron (Fill the Void) is enchanting as a young married Hasidic woman with a child who is quietly searching for something. She meets Félix, an eccentric and penniless French Canadian, played with earthy charm by Martin Dubreuil. Set against the beauty of Montreal, this is a sensitive love story between two people from two distinct worlds.
