Frustrated and ready for a change, Raven, a former Catholic turned Satanist, creates her own Satanic religion. Unfortunately, her congregation doesn’t quite agree with her on how things should be run. As they approach their first public demonstration, secrets are revealed, plans go awry, and everyone’s faith is questioned. Revenge of Eve explores good, evil and everything in between.
