Originaltitel: Tyhjiö

In a black (and white) satire over the Finnish cultural elite, award-winning Aleksi Salmenperä delivers a playfully comical relationship drama about a successful actress and a fragile writer. Eero is deeply buried in the process of his fifth novel; the problem is only that he suffers from severe writing cramps and has not been producing a single word for several years. He lives with the beautiful and intelligent Pihla whose acting career is facing an international breakthrough. Eero is sinking deeper into inferiority complexes and envy of his colleague writers’ successes and when Pihla gets the opportunity to live out her Hollywood dreams, their relationship goes from bad to worse.
