Is God Is is a modern myth about twins Racine and Anaia who set off on an adventure after receiving a letter from their mother whom they thought was dead. They make the journey from the Dirty South to the California desert to gain righteous revenge. The sisters are on a mission to avenge her past and are prepared to take down anyone who stands in their way. As babies, they suffered horrible violence, but the fire that left them disfigured left more than its physical mark as the fire burns within.
