Project Synopsis
Void Trial is a family-drama about a neglectful mother trying to convince her sister’s boyfriend that he is being irresponsible. Dina is a young single mother who was abandoned by her boyfriend while she was pregnant. When Dina’s pregnant sister Erica calls to let her know that her boyfriend Marco is planning on breaking up with her, Dina’s harboured anger and resentment is triggered and brought to the surface. While attempting to convince Marco not to abandon her sister, Dina becomes aware of how her unresolved bitterness has been damaging her relationship with her son Finn.
