$10, advance purchase suggested

Waited For is a feature documentary that interweaves three stories of South African lesbians who adopt across racial lines. Such families are a new phenomenon in this young democracy that until 1994 was ruled by Apartheid policies. Through their stories we see the progress that has been made in South Africa, but also the difficulties that families face when they challenge the traditional hierarchies of race and heterosexism that are still deeply entrenched in the South African psyche.
