Incomplete

Incomplete is a coming-of-age drama story about identity crisis caused by race relation, cultural assimilation, and sexual identification. The story introduces 15-year-old Christian Black and his three high-school friends (B-Boys) as they bully Banjo Lajumoke, a 15-year-old African boy struggling with his sexuality. From name calling to constant beating, Banjo decides to end his life by committing suicide. Haunted by guilt and devastated by shame, Christian's life goes into a downward spiral and drugs become his idol. 

Twelve years later, despite his effort to become a better person, the 27-year-old recent Yale law graduate continues to struggle with the guilt from his past. The nightmare continues, so does the party favors, but in the middle of every difficulty, lies opportunity. Josh Chapman, a classmate from Yale helps Christian get a job at his family law firm, Chaps LLC, but it won't be so easy. He must prove to Josh's bother, the firm managing partner, that he's worthy of the opportunity. After meeting the brother, Mr. Matt Chapman, Christian realizes that impressing him is not just impossible but critical. 

Now, imagine working for the devil. Lucifer himself at all level, but regardless the dynamics between Matt and Christian and the obvious differences between them, they at least have one thing in common and only the truth can set them free. Matt’s life has not been that easy, either as finding a donor for his chronic disease. As Christian learns the truth about Matt’s condition, he finds himself strangely drawn to the broken side of him, compelled to care, and quickly, care turns to love.

For him to be who he is, this is unacceptable. Better yet critical, but it doesn’t matter, Matt is dying anyway. The only person that could save him is his adopted father, but now the truth is out, so is that molester. Driven mad by the past, Christian's veneer of perfection dissolves and his true nature is revealed. They say bad choices make for good stories, but that’s only if you’re the hero at the end. 

The movie will offer numerous plot twists leading to unexpected revelations. And in the end, the cost of all sides begins to suggest that the problem is not so much the identity crisis caused by cultural assimilation or race relation, but rather how one sees itself as an agent of society with respect to those anomalies. At the end of 120 minutes, the reward for the viewer - who has been lured all this way by a unique and intense mystery drama – is not the simple gratification of seeing conflicted souls crossing over. Instead, the conclusion is something that the most vulnerable humankind will recognize: Life is not something you earned, it’s given.
