Synopsis

Documentary directed by Michael Beach Nichols and Christopher K. Walker follows Craig Cobb, infamous white supremacist and neo-Nazi, as he tried to claim a small town in North Dakota as a white nationalist community in 2012. Attempting to settle enough sympathisers to his campaign to claim majority rule in local government, Cobb begins buying up tracts of land to the dismay of Leith's 24 inhabitants. The documentary features interviews with both sides of the conflict, including harrassed local residents unsettled by gun-holding town patrols undertaken by Cobb and his groups, and raises questions about the limits of freedom of speech and what happens when the first amendment is taken to its most extreme.
