Synopsis: Don’t Be Afraid tells the story of Lynn, a woman with a dark past, locked in a prison of her own anxiety and confusion due to the circumstances of the time, desperate to get the medication that could prevent the darkness that terrorized her for years from materializing today and unleashing havoc. Little does she know just how dangerous her own past is to those around her.

Don’t Be Afraid, created at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown in early 2020, is a reflection of our social anxieties and trauma brought about my misinformation and poor national leadership. By now knowing what was real or dangerous or not, we were all susceptible to our own imaginations and fears and if you suffered physical or mental disorders, even more so. DBA is the story of how our fear only ever hurts those around us.
