Synopsis

Kate Murphy (Karen Sillas) lost everything when she hit rock bottom. Now, ten years sober, middle aged and living alone with her elderly cat, Kate strives to rebuild her broken life and repair her damaged relationship with her son Jack (Zachary Booth). Barely making ends meet as a visiting home health aide, Kate marches quietly through her uneventful days, until she is assigned a young, beautiful, paraplegic patient named Laura (Kristen Renton). Bonded by their mutual suffering, the two women share an undeniable connection and it isn’t long before they fall deeply in love. But when Kate steals money to save her dying cat, she betrays Laura’s trust and finds her fragile world shattered once again.

Director’s Statement: “T11 Incomplete is a story with disability at its center. The term ‘T11 Incomplete’ refers to the point of severing on the spine that causes paraplegia, but being an ‘incomplete’ paraplegic means that the patient still has some feeling, they are not completely numb.

As a disabled writer/director who is also part of the LGBTQ community, we made a conscious effort in our casting to be inclusive to the communities we are serving in the story. Which meant, we cast notable actors in the LGBTQ community as well as actors with apparent and non-apparent disabilities. The goal being to serve our story as authentically as possible.”
