After 27 years living with AIDS, award winning Canadian painter, Joe Average enters into a therapeutic photography project with fellow artist jamie griffiths in order to keep making art, after feeling no longer able to paint. Although the initial intention was to make art and express his feelings, the film succeeds in bringing to light the shocking reality of Lipoatrophy; the medication-induced side effect of body wasting.

i see the fear is about the lonliness of a degenerative life threatening illness. It is about the healing power of art, the artistic creative drive for self-expression and about the dual use of art by artists as a powerful social tool for education, bringing an important message to a 'post-AIDS' western world, that AIDS cocktails do not magically return you to a 'normal' life. i see the fear challenges the audience to look more deeply at their prejudices and misconceptions.
