Terrific lesbian relationship drama stars Maria de Medeiros (Henry & June)!
“Maria de Medeiros and Antonia Liskova star as Anna and Mara, arguably the world’s most gorgeous lesbian couple.” — Combustible Celluloid
Lesbian couple Anna (Maria de Medeiros) and Mara (Antonia Liskova) return from a holiday abroad, and realize that Anis (Mounir Ouadi), 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 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 with whom he has fallen in love, and Anna finds her idyllic domestic arrangement falling to pieces.
Shelter Me portrays three very unique characters confronted with an array of contemporary social issues. The richly portrayed relationship between Anna and Mara is the emotional centerpiece of this compassionate and moving drama.
