In this heartwarming, sweetly funny romance-dramedy, a thirty-something Israeli couple develops baby fever, putting their relationship to the test in a frenzy to get pregnant. Liran and Tali, a couple in their thirties who dream of having a child together, are one day told they will have to undergo fertility treatments. What seems simple at first turns out to be very complex. They discover that in order to be parents to a child, they will have to undergo a long journey full of hardships, with all the physical and mental difficulties that accompany it. Family pressures and of course the challenge it poses to the couple's relationship. Will their love last?


In a child-centric country like Israel, infertility has been a taboo subject until very recently. The Art of Waiting is an engrossing journey through every challenging aspect of fertility treatment, beautifully handled by director Erez Tadmor, who successfully went through the process with his wife a few years ago. Tadmor and one of the film’s lead actors, Roy Assaf, co-wrote the script.
