Overview & Credits


Fear speaks to those who live in fear. According to the National Institutes of Health, millions of individuals in the United States struggle with fear that they cannot control, which prevents them from living their lives freely. However, there is a glimmer of hope.

Witness Rachel as she conquers her crippling fear of heights, captured before, during, and after Kalliope assists her through a step-by-step process. When Kalliope releases her hand, Rachel is ultimately liberated from her fear and stands on a cliff, looking out over a valley with open arms, serving as an inspiration to all of us.
