A small town in rural Denmark. Between teenager Sara and newly arrived teacher Karen a bond develops amidst projections, quiet expectations and daily life all around. Courage leads to disappointment and when an unexpected event occurs, Karen is left on her own. Acutely observed, LIMBO is a film with a quiet drama, emphasizing the periphery as much as the center of the story.
