In this documentary we get to follow film director Jennifer Lynch in India as she is trying to make a movie called »Hisss« about a man-eating snake-goddess. Problems strike the production team, one after another, and Lynch is under constant pressure. The rain never stops falling, and the three million dollar budget is going down the drain.

At the same time as she is trying to direct the film, which is turning out to be an eight- month disaster, Jennifer Lynch is struggling with her private life. Complaining that she “hasn’t been laid in 400 years”, she’s trying to raise a daughter, stand free from her father David Lynch’s legacy and find love. To make matters worse, they are six months into production and it is still raining.

The production of »Hisss« might be a catastrophe, but the film »Despite the gods« is not. Funny, captivating and engaging, this documentary allows the audience to step into the not always easy world of filmmaking.
