The new trailer for “Welcome to Leith,” a documentary about the dangerous and cruel plans of white supremacist Craig Cobb, shows the almost apocalyptic-like effects of the detrimental mindset of a few terrifying individuals. 

The film takes place in Leith, a tiny ghost town of under thirty people in North Dakota. A newcomer to the town named Craig Cobb moves in, attempting to overthrow the government with his ruthlessly racist, homophobic and anti-Semitic ideals. In a scary account of what could happen when one person with ominous plans tries to manipulate and control, Michael Beach Nichols and Christopher K. Walker’s “Welcome to Leith” documents the fear and fighting power of those whom Cobb tried to affect while terrorizing innocent people. 

Watch the trailer above. The film opens in New York on September 9.
