'The Wait' is a cinematic journey into the lives of three families (including the filmmaker's own), whose loved ones have disappeared mysteriously. Suspended in a limbo and plagued by questions without answers, a married couple who lost their son, the wife and son of a missing man, and a young woman whose father disappeared, all talk to their absent loved ones in intimate letters, whilegoing about their mundane activities. As the different stories unfold and at times intermingle, what emerges is a story of haunting absence and anticipation, shared by all three families.
