Playing out in real time, SOFT & QUIET is a runaway train that follows a single afternoon in the life of Emily, a female white supremacist and elementary school teacher. Emily organizes the inaugural club meeting of 'Daughters for Aryan Unity', and she indoctrinates a group of alt-right women. When they all decide to move the meeting to Emily's house, they stop at the local store to pick up refreshments, where an altercation breaks out between two mixed-race Asian sisters and the club that spirals into a volatile chain of events.
