The Waiting Room is a riveting look behind the doors of a public hospital's overtaxed emergency room in Oakland, California. A poignant blend of humor and drama, the film offers a raw, intimate and ultimately uplifting look at the struggle and determination of one community and one hospital coping with limited resources and no road map for navigating a health care landscape marked by historic economic and political dysfunction. The Waiting Room is an eloquent and urgent anthem of the power of our collective humanity to meet the greatest challenges of our times.
