High school student Jane Greene saw a man kill himself, now her trauma haunts her waking hours with ghastly images that she must suppress so she can seem normal.


Fear in Me follows seventeen year old JANE GREENE who has been trying to regain normalcy after witnessing a random suicide that haunts her. Pretending that everything is normal is difficult for Jane who’s PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) brings about imagined nooses and guilt personified to haunt her waking hours. When the trauma becomes overwhelming Jane has her own brush with death and through that catharsis she is able to put her guilt behind her and move forward.
