In 2016, voters in the United Kingdom shook the world with the decision to leave the European Union. In the documentary Brexit: In or Out, we discover how the Vote Leave campaign team convinced a large group of people that the European Union caused all of their problems. From health care budget cuts to the endangerment of polar bears.

After the referendum, screenwriter James Graham discovered that the Brexit team used a clever mix of false promises and controversial social media strategies. His findings resulted in the feature film Brexit: The Uncivil War, with Benedict Cumberbatch as Dominic Cummings, the mastermind behind the campaign. Accompanied by images from the film, Brexit: In or Out shows how Cummings was able to use the insecurities of a nation divided by class. Are the voters still happy with their choice?
