According to the legend of a curse, Esther Solar's family is destined to die from their fears. Esther avoids pretty much everything: elevators, small spaces and crowds; haircuts, spiders, dolls. She even keeps a record of in her semi-definitive list of worst nightmares. Then Jonah Smallwood swindles her out of her phone, money, a fruit roll-up-- and her list of fears. He sets a challenge: to break the curse, they will face one terrifying fear at a time. Including one not on the list: love.--
