    [synopsis] => The Waiting Room unfolds over the course of a single, life-changing day, but the story it tells spans five decades, three continents, and one family's compelling history of love, war, and survival.

As the daughter of Holocaust survivors, Dina's present has always been haunted by her parents' pasts. She becomes a doctor, emigrates, and builds a family of her own, yet no matter how hard she tries to move on, their ghosts keep pulling her back. A dark, wry sense of humor helps Dina maintain her sanity amid the constant challenges of motherhood and medicine, but when a terror alert is issued in her adopted city, her coping skills are pushed to the limit. Interlacing the present and the past over a span of twenty-four hours, The Waiting Room is an intense exploration of what it means to endure a day-to-day existence defined by conflict and trauma, and a powerful reminder of just how fragile life can be. As the clock counts down to a shocking climax, Dina must confront her parents' history and decide whether she will surrender to fear, or fight for love.
