Based on the 2012 MSNBC documentary, Bryon Widner was one of the FBI's most sought after white supremacists. Covered in racist tattoos from head to toe that he earned performing hate crimes, he conducts a destructive life and is headed down the path of no return. When he meets Julie and her three young daughters from previous relationships, the responsibilities of fatherhood give him the desire to leave the movement behind. He endures death threats and harassment from his old gang while attempting to turn his life around. With the help of the FBI and SPLC, he undergoes 25 brutal tattoo removal surgeries in exchange for decoding the tattoos covering his body, which culminates in the arrest and conviction of his former gang.

The first time Jamie Bell spoke to Bryon Widner about playing him in the film was on Aug. 12, 2017, the day the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville was taking place. Bell says that Widner had to cut the phone conversation short because he wanted to make sure that Daryle Lamont Jenkins was okay. As depicted in the documentary Alt Right: Age of Rage, Jenkins was one of the counter protesters in Charlottesville that day. See more
