comment What is it called when the outcome of the plot is not told?
@Thomas I don't think so. "Cliffhanger" is more for episodic content. From wikipeida: "A cliffhanger is hoped to ensure the audience will return to see how the characters resolve the dilemma."

I didn't see that. Thanks. I guess there isn't a term for it. It's just a specialized case of an open ending.

Hmm, thats not quite what I'm looking for. The point of not telling the ending to not so that audience can imagine how it could have ended but rather than it is not important compared to plot. Much like the quote, "It's the journey not the destination".
