British theatre director Stephen Bayly accepts an invitation to teach twelve novel actors a technique to overcome Fear. The documentary follows the teacher through this process, starting at an international Workshop in the mythic EICTV of San Antonio de los Baños (Cuba), and concluding in an urban mise-en-scène in Santiago (Chile). Through Stephen’s work with the Cuban group, we get in touch with the unique flavour of Sanford Meisner’s acting exercises, to later witness their use in a theatrical experiment performed by the Chilean group in public spaces, using pieces of contemporary Chilean Poetry inspired on the emotion Fear. This Poetry material will be the continuum that, along with Stephen, will provoke both groups of actors, in the attempt to face their own insecurities and open up to the abyss of artistic experience. A try of the Unknown, which the teacher will have to cross along with them.
