SYNOPSIS: Five dangerous patients, suffering from extreme phobias at a government testing facility, are put to the ultimate test under the supervision of a crazed doctor and his quest to weaponize fear. Johnny, a loner caring for his ailing father, suffers from a fear of technology after befriending a dark force on the internet. Sami, a punk rocker, suffers from a crippling fear of driving after a robbery gone wrong. Emma, a school teacher, suffers from a fear of teenagers after she’s attacked by students in her home. Alma, an ex-swat team vet suffers from a fear of weapons after an accidental hit during a raid. Renee, a high powered architect, suffers from a fear of imperfection that drives her to kill. When Johnny infiltrates the facility in order to seek revenge against the doctor who tortured his father years ago, the group must learn to harness their fears in order to escape, or risk reliving their darkest memories on repeat under lockdown.
