The subject of Rama Burshtein's debut drama Fill the Void—marriage in the ultra-Orthodox community—is fodder for comedy in her follow-up feature. When Michal's fiancé calls off their wedding a month before the scheduled date, she refuses to cancel the arrangements, trusting that God will provide her with a replacement husband in time. Now 32, with a mobile petting zoo that she takes around to children events, she's wanted to get married for a decade. She longs for love, for companionship, but also for the social acceptance withheld from unmarried women in their 30s. Her faith is strong, but, inclined to be proactive, hires an earthly marriage broker  as well. He sets her up with a variety of suitors, all suitable in some ways, deeply unsuitable in others. When that approach proves unsuccessful, Michal embarks on a pilgrimage to Ukraine and the grave of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov (founder of the Breslov sect of Hasidism), where she begs God for a sign. But will the sign be forthcoming? And will it come before the contract with the catering hall expires?
