Steven Matrix is a freelance hitman who will kill anyone for a price. But when another assassin puts a bullet through his head, Matrix finds himself waiting to enter the Other Place for his sins. However, an elderly man sees something in Matrix and sends him back to Earth. Now Matrix must redeem his sins by using his formerly murderous skills to help others. Helping him are representatives of the City In Between, who can appear as anything from skateboarders to nuns to accountants.
