A documentary look at Mexican immigrant life and the fast-growing subculture that venerates the folk saint Santa Muerte (The Holy Dead). The film is a colorful celebration of this thriving transplant community in Queens, and a religion in which devotion takes the form of parties, late-night worship sessions and a reverence for death.
