Doña Queta and Enriqueta Vargas are two Mexican women whose devotion to Santa Muerte, the Saint of Death, has created a cultural revolution. Though Santa Muerte is condemned by the Catholic Church as a Satanic cult figure beloved by drug lords, the reality is she calls to people who have been rejected by their religion, families, and cultures. These women are responsible for bringing that faith to millions of lost people who thought themselves lost.
