The film goes on to show the development of Zach and Shuan's relationship and Zach's struggle of looking after his nephew while trying to avoid suspicion from his sister Jeanne (Tina Holmes,) and also questioning whether or not to reply apply to art college.
The strength of Shelter is Zach's relatable portrayal of a young man coming to terms with his sexuality and question how the hell is he supposed to make it work without his life falling apart.
In retrospect, despite Zach's harsh home life, he is quite lucky in the way that he does not come up against much homophobia (except a few anti-gay role model remarks from his low-life sister), especially considering the fact that he was sleeping with his best mates brother. People are not often so lucky!
All in all the movie has some great morals including work hard at what you enjoy doing, provide for your family and be with the person who makes you happy.
This film is great for people who like to be left with a warm fuzzy feeling while the credits role!
