An oneiric journey through Alex’s life as a former guerrilla leads to a reckoning with the devil inside of him. He is haunted by a dream of dueling with the devil, a nightmare he can only vanquish with the help of yagé (ayahuasca), a psychotropic medicine administered by a shaman in his indigenous community. As both a perpetrator and victim, Alex exemplifies the complexity of the Colombian conflict and the difficulties of simply moving on.
Limbo tells his story in a uniquely fitting form, a truck transformed into a giant camera obscura, a black box in which up and down, wrong and right are not fixed. It is in this confessional, surreal space where we are confronted with life mired between a militant passed and a civilian present. Through its experimental form, the film illuminates life in limbo.
