ABOUT FEAR LIATH Rural Manitoba. Farm country. Four friends travel from the big city, looking for peace, quiet, and relaxation at a farmhouse. What they find instead tests the limits of their trust, and the depth of their courage, as they are forced to confront the fear that lurks not-so-silently in the dark…
