Two young black New York City college students with very different backgrounds connect and go on a road trip out into the country. I didn't get any visceral feel for what drew the characters together in the first place; opposites sometimes attract, but these two opposites come across more as mutually annoying than anything else. I also found the ending very unsatisfying, because it left open the question of why the story was worth telling. Blueprint would have worked much better as a short; it didn't have nearly enough character development for an hour and a quarter. Flawed, but worth seeing.
