A festival favorite, The Country of Fear is a must see for high school and college level students. The film touches upon one of the most talk about behavioral issues happening on campus these days. Carlos, Sara, and their preteen son Pablo, live a peaceful middle-class life until Sara begins to notice things disappearing in the house. She blames the Moroccan maid and eventually fires her. But the stealing doesn’t stop; Pablo is the culprit. Fearful, Carlos decides to follow Pablo to school where he discovers that a 13-year-old classmate, Marta, is bullying and extorting Pablo. But resolving the affair isn’t that easy and he becomes Marta’s victim as well. Carlos’s inability to defend himself or his son, pushes him to a series of anguished situations that would lead him to make the wrong decisions.
