Jimmy (Lew Temple) has died in an attempt to rob a pawn shop that resulted in a shoot-out where he shot the owner (Veronica Cartwright), and now finds himself in limbo, that place between heaven and hell where it's determined where the respective souls are sent to. But to Jimmy, limbo looks just like a run down office in bad need of a cleaning, where he faces a grumpy prosecutor, Balthazar (Lucian Charles Collier), who's really an angel under punishment, and who's more than eager to just have Jimmy sign a paper that will condemn him to hell - but not so fast! In comes Cassiel (Scottie Thompson), career lawyer from heaven, who's to prove that there's still good in Jimmy. That's much easier said than one though as Jimmy has always been a criminal and lowlife, ever since he killed his own mother (Rebekah Kennedy) at age 12 - though to be fair she was an incorrigible heroin addict who made him work for her next fix. It's only much later that he meets Angela (Lauryn Canny), a young girl with ambitions who just ended up being a prostitute that Jimmy starts to show his gentle side - if only inasmuch as he feels sorry that she gets beaten up by her pimp (Chad Lindberg) repeatedly, but doesn't interfere. And yet, the girl takes a liking in him.

Trying her best to defend Jimmy, Cassiel gets ever closer to giving up, as there just seems nothing redeemable in her client. But even in limbo, things are not always just black and white ...

 

One just can't but love the concept of Limbo, as it's a comedy at heart (and also a comedy with heart), but it doesn't shy away from the dirtier, more gruesome aspects of its story and doesn't gloss over them in favour of getting a few more laughs, something that's mirrored in the direction that goes back and forth between the gritty and down-to-earth on one side and the satyrical and stylized on the other. And one can't help but liking the main characters, all with their own shortcomings, all ably portrayed by a solid ensemble cast. A fun ride for sure.
