    The film, “The Waiting Room,” is a documentary that records the events at a public emergency room over the course of 24 hours.

    have their differences in their ambiance, waiting, and expense. When deciding where to go to eat, I have three things to think about. I must consider the atmosphere or where I want to go. The amount of time I have is another consideration. The amount of money that I am able to spend is a big influence. The atmosphere at Jake’s is casual, and people came to spend several hours.
