Seventeen-year-old Ben has just moved from a ranch where his dad was the foreman, to a trailer park where his dad doesn't have a job. His dad has befriended a local mechanic who runs what seems to be a men's support group but is in fact a white supremacist organization. At first Ben finds it easy to believe the rhetoric and is soon blaming gays, Jews and other groups for all his problems. Ben and his brother, David participate in the group's horrible activities, but with the help of new friends who challenge his thinking, Ben soon realizes the danger in propagating hatred. Ben may be able to save himself, but has his younger brother already gone too far?
