About The Film: Synopsis: Incompleteness Film Synopsis:
The central character is ALEX, a miserable, workaholic TV news editor who receives a terminal cancer diagnosis -- leading him on a self-indulgent quest to win back his pregnant-and-estranged wife and connect with his unborn son through a self-funded, semi-autobiographical movie about the meaning of life. Overflowing with incredibly profound ideas but with no idea what to do with them, he hires a brilliant, nihilistic, possibly psychotic screenwriter, PAUL, who will mercilessly battle Alex over control of the storyline in order to turn the film into his own sci-fi inspired, hyper-metaphysical, inner-demon slaying catharsis.
Utilizing an innovative metanarrative structure, the series explores the themes of identity, destiny, and mortality as part of a more fundamental meditation on the illusions of the self, free will, and time.
