Producers of Erasing Hate followed Bryon and Julie and family for two years, throughout the entire tattoo removal process. Bryon and Julie faced death threats and constant harassment. After that experience, Fleischer realized he could combat other hate instances across Montreal.
Bryon remained haunted by the cruelty he had shown to others.
If my work speaks to just one person, than it will have been worth my time. The tattoo signifies the willingness to kill for the white race. With financial support from the Southern Poverty Law Center, in early Bryon began the long and grueling laser tattoo removal process at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Bryon and Julie packed up the family and fled from Michigan to Tennessee to start a new life.
Each treatment shows the extreme suffering Bryon endured, and can be seen almost as his penance for a hate filled past. He began his movement online, inspiring people to report any instances of hate crime or anti-Semitism across the city, and promised to have it removed within 24 hours, free of charge.
Now, with Erasing Hate, he hopes to pay his experiences forward.
Julie soon gave birth to Bryon's first biological child, a son named Tyrson. But escaping the white power movement was not easy.
