Waiting for the Miracle to Come
Set in a magical, timeless world with colors reminiscent of an old storybook, Waiting For the Miracle to Come shares the story of a young girl who is sent on a journey of discovery. Faith, love, and completion all come to her, clothed in the broken state of loss—as the most powerful changes often do.
Following a cryptic note her father left behind, Adeline (Sophie Lowe) is led to a small town in the desert of California. The note speaks of hidden treasure, but the treasure Adeline finds is not what she expects. She finds an odd old couple, Jimmy and Dixie (Willie Nelson and Charlotte Rampling) waiting for their estranged daughter to find them. Adeline finds herself playing a crucial role in making Jimmy and Dixie’s dream come true.
Waiting for the Miracle to Come tells a simple story but leaves much open to interpretation. It’s a film that makes you feel what the characters are feeling.

Other times, the film makes sense, and you understand a little more about what is happening within the characters on the screen. These thoughts and feelings felt by viewers seem to correspond to what the characters are feeling, making the film a truly unique experience.
