Set in the wild mountains of Connemara where normal rules don’t apply, ‘Shelter’ tells the story of a naïve recluse, John Cunliffe, who is suddenly propelled into manhood at the ripe old age of 28. When his over-protective parents pass away, friendless John inherits mountain land that is in the way of a lucrative wind-farm development, and he is forced to navigate the choppy waters of romance, trust and vengeance for the first time.
