Doc Soup: Hot Docs' monthly screening series that presents Festival hits and award-winning docs.

After 23 years on death row, convicted murderer Nick petitions the court and asks to be executed. In a monologue that is part confessional and part performance, Nick tells his mesmerizing story but nothing is what it seems. As his tale unfolds it reveals itself to be something much deeper—an emotionally powerful mediation on the redemptive power of love and literature. A daring experiment in the art of storytelling, The Fear of 13 is psychological thriller filled with the jaw-dropping twists that will keep you guessing up until the final shocking revelation.

Director David Sington will be in attendance to introduce the film and participate in Q&As.
