All white is not all right

How does a tiny village in North Dakota react when neo-Nazis settle down with plans of building an Aryan society? White Supremacy hate groups are under constant surveillance by the US government, but having one living in your own neighborhood is still a cause for worry. And despite their law-abiding strategies, the inhabitants of Leith still feel threatened by the eccentric Craig Cobb and his associates. WELCOME TO LEITH both fascinates and terrifies with its depiction of modern-day followers of the racial doctrines of Nazi Germany. More than anything, though, the film is a testament to ordinary Americans, who regardless of creed and colour wish to live in peaceful coexistence.
