The Atlantic’s first feature-length documentary, the film is presented as an “internal and definitive story of the movement that came to be known as the alt-right (alternative right, in direct translation)”. The film follows Mike Cernovich, a conspiracy theorist and blogger, Lauren Southern, an anti-feminist and anti-immigration star of the YouTube, and Richard Spencer, an ideologue of the white supremacist movements.
