Summary
Violent skinhead Bryon Widner's face, neck, and hands were covered with intimidating tattoos before he began the lengthy process of having them removed. But tattoo removal was just the outward sign of an inner transformation. Bryon had been an active and particularly vicious member of the white supremacist movement for 16 years-one of his tattoos signified a willingness to kill for the Aryan race-until meeting his wife and having a change of heart. This program follows Bryon and his family through the painful laser treatments as his journey from runaway teen to extremist skinhead to soul-searching family man is revealed. Discussing why they left Hammerskin Nation and the death threats they still receive, the Widners provide viewers with an inside look at the world of white power hate groups.
