Product Description:

An FBI agent goes undercover to investigate a suspected murderer. As the agent becomes romantically involved with the man under suspicion, she uncovers a white supremacist network that includes government officials.

Plot Synopsis:

When an abrasive radio talk-show host is brutally murdered in Chicago, the FBI steps in to investigate. The leading suspects are a group of white supremacists headquartered in the rural Midwest, so the Bureau sends a female agent to infiltrate the community and uncover the truth about their involvement. But the agent compromises her objectivity when she falls in love with one of the prime suspects and refuses to believe he could be guilty of such a heinous crime. Before long, however, the man reveals his darker side, with its horrific displays of blind hatred and violence.

Plot Keywords:

Action | Betrayal | Murder | Race Relations | Romance | Theatrical Release

Production Notes:

  • Shot in Astro color. Greg Lundsgaard was the Director of Photography for the Chicago sequences.
  • The film's opening sequence was apparently inspired by the murder of Denver radio talk-show host Alan Berg, who was gunned down in his driveway by a group of white supremacists in the summer of 1984. See also "Talk Radio," directed by Oliver Stone (USA/1988).

Rating 5.0 Wonderful. Disturbing. But Wonderful. Movie Lover: from Mattoon, IL US -- March, 4, 2010

I could never find fault with anything that either of these actors starred in...they're both at the top of my list. Beyond that, though, this is a great movie: A+ for the plot, the acting, the tension that builds. The premise is disturbing because of the knowledge that there are really people out there teaching youngsters to hate, & I like my movies to take me to some sort of Utopia. (Darned reality!!) However, the tension of "when is he going to find out?" & "the boy is supposed to get the girl, but how can that be in THIS movie?" will keep you from taking that bathroom break, so go early. You won't want to miss a minute of this.
