Here below you can find the plot of The Wait:

She's smart, popular, and a natural talent on the soccer field, but 14-year-old Rokhsar is deeply distressed. Five years after fleeing Afghanistan for Denmark, her family is still in danger. They live without a residence permit and the threat of deportation looms over their everyday lives. Not only is Rokhsar the youngest, she is the only member of the family who can read and speak Danish, placing the burden of communicating with the authorities on her shoulders. Can a teenager bear such a difficult task? Friends, neighbors and acquaintances offer their assistance, but the asylum policy is often merciless.
