Shot on location in Utah in the months between September 11th, 2001 and the start of the war in Iraq, WAITING FOR NESARA documents the true story of The Open Mind Forum, a messianic group of Salt Lake City ex-Mormons, and the radical faith that binds them together in the wake of 9/11. The group anxiously await the implementation of NESARA - a miraculous secret law hundreds of years in the making - that they believe was blocked and covered up by the Bush administration. The group believes that the 9/11 attacks were Bush's first attempt to delay NESARA's implementation, and that the Iraq war will be his second.

Interesting group of people - bad directing / editing. Gets repetitive and boring
The movie could have been good - had the director and editor chosen to display any sort of plot or story arc. But there simply isn't either. Nothing actually "happens". It's an hour and a half of the same people telling the same stuff over and over.
Interesting? Absolutely. The subjects are lunatics who deserve this sort of documentation. But the viewer deserves to be at least mildly entertained by the talent of a filmmaker. On that front, this movie fails miserably.
I find the NESARA group to be indicative of all religious groups - appearing insane to anyone outside their bubble. All religions look like crazed cults from an outside perspective. This highly radical ex-Mormon group comes across as insane and even its own members question the truthfulness of their claims.
In short, this would make a great 20-30 minute television piece. But this is far too long of a movie with no plot or action, or even really a point of view.
