Daniel Radcliffe plays an FBI agent infiltrating a white supremacist organization in Daniel Ragussis’ debut feature.
An idealistic FBI agent, played by Daniel Radcliffe (Kill Your Darlings and Swiss Army Man) goes undercover to infiltrate a white supremacist group that’s plotting an act of terror. Based on the real-life experiences of former FBI agent Michael German, the thriller opens with a new and nerdy agent Nate Foster (Radcliffe) getting assigned to go undercover in a neo-Nazi organization suspected of planning a dirty bomb terrorist attack. The organization’s figurehead is Dallas Wolf, played by Tracy Letts (‘August: Osage County), a popular, hate-spouting radio talk show personality and author of Genocide: The Murder of White America.
