If, as poet-philosophers tell us "all of life is loss," then surely it is hope that keeps us alive. But what happens when hope is lost? That question is explored through the character of John Kavazanjian, the central figure in the short film Wait. He's a tough, working-class guy who learns that his only son was killed in Iraq. At this point in his life John Kavazanjian has lost a good many things- his looks, his vigor, his youthful imaginings of wealth-and now his only son to war; the son into whom he poured all his remaining dreams. This is the story of how one man deals with tragic finality. The irony of life, as the film suggests, is that even when hope seems lost... wait.
