On the eve of her 13th birthday, Esther must come to terms with the realities of becoming a woman with her eccentric grandfather and his pet pug, King Henry, as her guide. Life Doesn’t Frighten Me is a coming-of-age comedy about a young woman’s exploration of ugliness and beauty.

Good calling card for Stephen Patrick Dunn showcasing the right mix of 'coming of age' tale and everyday absurdity. Love the idea of '...you may think that you're in the worst time of your life, but let me tell you something, it never gets better...' Lovely turn by Gordon Pinsent to boot.
