The Wait tells the story of Eladio, a ranch guard who loses his son, Floren, in a hunting accident. Soon after, his life is once again struck by tragedy when the body of his wife, Mirella, is found hanging from an oak tree, unable to bear the pain of losing Floren and her husband’s lack of understanding. Guilt, torment and rage will violently explode when Eladio confronts the man he blames for his misfortune: Don Carlos, the man who oversaw the hunt where his son died. Eladio will venture into a macabre descent into hell when he finds out that his misfortune might not be entirely by chance and that something dark and sinister might be behind his tragedy.
