Anna and Mara return from a holiday abroad, and realize that Anis, a young moroccan immigrant, managed to hide in their car in order to cross the border to Italy. At first unsure of what to do, they then decide to take him with them. Gradually Anis establishes himself in the life of the couple and for a brief moment, the three manage to help and support each other in an unusual and emotionally intricate relation. Yet this precarious balance is short-lived: Anis loses his job and is rejected by Mara who he has fallen in love with and Anna has to witness her idyllic domestic arrangement fall to pieces.“SHELTER” portrays three human beings, diverse from each other and the majority, compelled to deal, with compassion, trust and fear, with issues raised by sexual orientation, coming of age, immigration and work related problems.
