Synopsis* : T11 Incomplete is not only an LGTBQI love story at its core, but also highlights the disabled community through authentic casting and employing disabled crew. The film was made with a conscious decision to not only hire disabled actors and actors from the LGBTQI community - but also to employ behind the scenes crew who are also members of these same communities. 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.
Debuting on VOD and Streaming in the US, T11 Incomplete, which is being released in the US & Canada (by Gravatas Ventures) and the UK (by Bohemia Media), is a groundbreaking film in that not only does it tackle a subject matter and characters that are marginalized by society (the disability and the LGBTQI communities) but the film was made with a conscious decision to not only hire disabled actors and actors from the LGBTQI community - but also to employ behind the scenes crew who are also members of these same communities.
With visibility growing in front of the camera for members of these groups (specifically the disabled community), the creators of this film wanted to set an example by which the hope is that Hollywood will follow suit to a more diverse and inclusive movie making process both in front of and behind the lens. T11 Incomplete's writer/director Suzanne Guacci was a recipient of the distinguished Ravenal Feature Film Grant for the film, and it has appeared at multiple festivals worldwide with its premiere at Outfest.
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.

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. View the trailer here: https://aspirefilmproductions.com
