Peter Vollmer is the leader of a small neo-Nazi movement in a large American city. He's having trouble getting his message across and seems to alienate people every time he opens his mouth. After a particularly bad rally, he hears a voice and sees a man standing in the shadows. He begins to advise Peter on what to say and how he can structure his message to make it more appealing to his particular audience. Peter has success but his mentor begins pushing him to extremes. There is a limit however and there is a voice of reason in the mob that seemed so willing to follow him. Written by

In the opening scene, Peter Vollmer is hit with a tomato or
other vegetable in the face which splatters along the left side of his head, hair, neck and left shoulder part of his shirt. He has no residue at all on any of those areas after he briefly fights with the heckler immediately after getting hit by the vegetable. Shortly later, when he returns home after the brief fight, the opposite side of his shirt (the right side which did not get splattered) has several spots evenly spread over that side...more spots than he could have gotten by falling in the street during his brief fight.
