Carlos, a peaceful man, looks how his quiet life is shaken when Marta, a girl aged 13, irrupts in it and starts to extort him. Unable to defend himself, he becomes involved in a series of distressing situations that lead to a disproportionate response.

The country of fear digs into our worst fears and how they may and up becoming the source of different forms of domination. Such fears can lead us to accept overprotective behaviour.
