Storyline

A gritty, heartfelt drama about a brother and sister who both start out with the American Dream of running their own business and being successful. Teresa goes about this dream in a good way, meaning she works hard and treats people right. Her brother, Solomon, is a hustler who borrows money from loan sharks to open a music store. When he doesnt pay, the sharks come after him, but it's his sister who ends up in a wheelchair. She doesn't know it was her brother's fault. The film follows how Solomon descends on a downward spiral while losing faith in everything, while Teresa becomes a stronger person as her faith increases. She eventually learns it was his fault, and they must come to terms and make amends. Written by Andrea J Loney

A great example of human nature and how one can rise above sorrow with a little bit of faith.
26 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Edgy feel for a movie. Really enjoyed that "God's Waiting List" - didn't hide the sorrow of the story. Story line that linked the characters by happiness and tragedy - everything you find in real life. Loved the character's realness about being torn between choices and like most people getting caught up in the cycle of 'bad' choices until they hit rock bottom. When you hit rock bottom - there is no where else to go. Which I felt was demonstrated with the end scene with Solomon's character. Some really deep moments for the character Rachel. LOVED the fight scene when Rachel leaves Solomon. Thought that scene did justice to Nian Aster's acting ability and depth as an actress. Duane Adler's directing is always wonderful - and it showed in the Chinese checkers scene. The humor in that scene was great. Really enjoyed the film.
