Limbo, a dusty, west-Texas border town, was first an Indian village. But the white man took the land by force, killing many of the Indians and chasing away the rest of them.
The Indians buried their dead on the outskirts of Limbo, fled to the mountains, but later returned and massacred everyone and left the town in ashes.
A Comanche spell, cast upon Limbo, prevented the souls of those who died there to be released into the spirit world and established a boundary to hold them there forever. The citizens of Limbo resurrected. They picked up where they'd left off, unaware how their lives had changed, but after certain suspicious events took place they realized that there were two sides to life - the one they lived in now and the one they all wanted to return to.
The townsfolk believed it was God who brought them back to life and that he would provide a sign that would show them how to return to their former lives. Given a second chance, they vowed against violence and all other sins ...
