Filmmaker Deeyah Khan meets neo-Nazis and white nationalists face-to-face in the US to understand the personal and political motivations behind the country's resurgence of far-right extremism. Speaking with fascists, racists and proponents of alt-right ideologies, Deeyah, a Muslim, attempts to discover new possibilities for connections and solutions. When she finds herself in the middle of one of America's biggest and most violent far-right rallies in recent years, Deeyah's safety is jeopardized. With a US president promulgating anti-Muslim propaganda, and divisive populist rhetoric infecting political and public discourses across western democracies, the film's urgent, resonant and personal look at race wars is more relevant than ever.
