When cartoonist Matt Furie created the character Pepe the Frog, he could not imagine what it would lead to. Pepe was one of four characters in the comic Boy's Club about a group of young slackers who shared an apartment after college. The series became popular on the internet and soon Pepe the Frog's face began to appear in memes. But what began as occasional, harmless jokes grew into something completely different when the alt-right movement in the United States began using Pepe to spread hatred. To his horror, Furie sees his character taken away from him and used for something he does not endorse. This documentary shows Fury's struggle to regain control of his creation.
