WAITING PERIOD is a surreal short film depicting the psychological toll of the mandatory 24-hour waiting period women must endure before the state allows her to have an abortion. Our story follows Lena who is forced to spend her waiting period in a clinic run by a Counselor who plays mind games with her and her cohabitants. The women look to each other for comfort and strength inside these manipulative walls.
