Chris is a nerdy young man with few prospects, perpetually on the edge of being able to afford rent and food thanks to his zero hour contract. He's also in love with his best friend, Cassie. When Cassie doesn't share his feelings Chris falls into a deep depression.
At the same time #gamergate begins trending on twitter and quickly becomes a virulent misogynistic movement. It catches on in particular in the sort of nerdy online spaces Chris frequents and in his vulnerable state Chris quickly falls down the alt-right rabbit hole.
Red Pill is the cautionary tale of Chris' journey to radicalisation, exploring the development of the alt-right alongside our protagonist's indoctrination into it.
