A violent, white supremacist ideology is spreading around the world, with believers trying to create chaos in order to seize control. 

When recruitment posters for a group calling itself The Base start to appear in Manitoba, Winnipeg Free Press journalist Ryan Thorpe decides to go undercover to infiltrate and get more information.

Thorpe meets with a Canadian Armed Forces reservist trying to establish a local neo-Nazi cell, and discovers that he is planning attacks and destruction abroad.

This six-part series follows the extraordinary case through Thorpe's perspective as an infiltrator — while host Michelle Shephard, a veteran national security journalist, explores the rise of white supremacist accelerationism.
