Four  parallel narratives  trace the path of growing up of girl children of various  age groups. The film deals with the shattering of their dreams, the construction of their desires, the growing alienation from their body and the formation of fear. The experiential narratives are juxtaposed with interviews of older women who have gone through violent marriages and are able to trace the connection between the construction of feminity and marital violence.


Memories of Fear explores the interplay between  sexuali­ty,  construction of fear, and women's own contribution  to  the system that continues to denigrate them.
