In the 2003 thriller, A Problem with Fear, we follow Hamish (played by Paulo Costanzo), a young man struggling with his phobia of getting into cars. He leads a mundane life working as a courier when one day he meets a quirky and intriguing woman named Juliette (played by Emily Hampshire) at a coffee shop. The two quickly hit it off and Hamish agrees to give her a ride home. However, the journey doesn't go as planned, and events beyond his control lead to a devastating accident that has him questioning his own sanity.

As he tries to come to terms with the accident and the aftermath, Hamish is plagued by increasing episodes of anxiety and paranoia. He starts to receive strange messages and hires a private investigator to uncover the source of these messages. However, even the PI begins to suspect that Hamish might be losing his mind.

Meanwhile, Juliette becomes an integral part of his life, seemingly offering comfort and support through the tough times. However, as Hamish's grip on reality continues to slip, he begins to question if Juliette is everything she seems.
