A young man in Calgary, Alberta is multiphobic: nonetheless, he believes that he is the cause of the fear which is killing people around him. Fear centres around Laurie Harding (Paulo Costanzo), a young man who is afraid of virtually anything that the general population might take for granted: riding elevators and escalators, crossing the street, pasta (or any meal involving red sauce) and – as his girlfriend Dot (Emily Hampshire) knows all to well – commitment. It soon occurs to Laurie that people seem to be dying from the things that he is most afraid of and resolves to confront his own fears for the betterment of society as a whole.
