A struggling father trying to support his family is shot during a robbery and travels through Hell to save his dying newborn son.
Robbed at gunpoint while working the night shift, a struggling father trying to support his family is shot during a robbery and travels through the limbo between life and death to save his dying newborn son. Watching the crook run out of the store with a bag full of cash, Benny takes stock of his life; his good-paying factory job is gone, and his wife sits in a hospital emergency room with his sick child. Determined to gain control over his life, he grabs the gun under the counter and runs after the robber. One bullet later, he finds out how precious life is and how far he must go to keep it, even if it means walking straight through Hell. In the limbo between life and death, he searches for his dying son’s soul amid dangerous grounds and terrifying demons, and discovers that life isn’t about what you have, but how much you love—and how far you’ll go to see your love again.
