Set in the American Prairies of Montana, The Great Fear introduces us to a quiet farmer named Victor.
He is forced to forfeit his cattle following a questionable inspection of his farm by a large agricultural corporation known as Vassal. Left with only his tractors at his disposal, he decides to rent out one of his homes to a tenant. This tenant turns out to be a woman named Meryl, who appears to be looking for something.
As this aloof pair begins to open up to one another, something quietly discomforting casts a shadow on the community. All the locals begin showing flu like symptoms and Vassal begins to show a gradually increasing presence.
