NEW YORK, (March 21, 2013) - Visit Films has licensed Canadian rights to M. Blash's The Wait to Berkshire Axis Media (BAM) Distribution Inc. The deal was negotiated by Iain Taylor of BAM and Ryan Kampe of Visit Films. The film, which premiered last week at the SXSW Film Festival, is a profoundly affecting work that deals with grief and loss of a parent.

An enigmatic phone call from a psychic catapults a family into a state of suspended belief while waiting for their recently deceased mother to be resurrected. One sister believes the claim; the other staunchly opposes it until she encounters a chance at love, giving her hope that anything, even resurrection, is possible. A discordant struggle between sisters plays out in a world where the virtual and the real converge.

Carefully constructed, The Wait stars Jena Malone (Into The Wild, Pride and Prejudice and the upcoming Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and Chloé Sevigny (Big Love, Boys Don't Cry). Luke Grimes (Brothers & Sisters) portrays a philosophical and enigmatic man who falls for Malone's character. The film confronts the subjects of belief, death, love and family and leaves the sisters walking a fine line between reality and fantasy.
