How can an open society balance demands for security with democracy? State of Fear dramatises the human and social costs a democracy faces when it embarks on a war on terror, potentially without end.

The film follows events in Peru, blending personal testimony, history and archival footage to tell the story of escalating violence in the Andean nation. It looks at how the fear of terror undermined its democracy, making Peru a virtual dictatorship where official corruption replaced the rule of law.
