    • Synopsis
    • THE WAITING CITY is a poignantly written and textured drama, starring Rahda Mitchell (High Art, Finding Neverland) and Joel Edgerton (Kinky Boots, Star Wars II & III) as a young couple whose crumpling marriage is being held together by the anticipation of adopting a baby in India. When they finally receive the phone call telling them that everything is ready, they rush off to Calcutta with expectations that their problems will disappear with parenthood. Their arrival into the teeming metropolis of colors and contrasts brings the jarring realization that in life there are no easy solutions to complex problems and they are forced to wait without any explanations from the adaptation agency.
      When the adoption finally falls apart due to unforeseen problems, what could be spell the end of the marriage turns into a journey of discovery and renewal thru the mystery and beauty of Calcutta and the Indian countryside.
