When a young busker's dream of reaching the big top falters, she is forced to look inward to decide her fate.
VOID OF JOY was the Nostalgice Film entry for the Toronto 48 Hour Film Fest, written, filmed and edited within a weekend from October 14 to 16 2022. Following the story of a performer finding herself in a home she doesn't feel welcome in anymore, VOID OF JOY was the collaboration of 18 creatives -- cast and crew -- giving up their weekend to create something incredible together.
