A German emigrant who stylized himself as Hitler's deputy in America in the 1930s, marching his troops through American cities and filling Madison Square Garden with supporters.

With the help of Kuhn's distinctive propaganda and the overwhelming press response, the documentary tells the unusual story of propaganda in the USA.
