Too busy channel-hopping on the television, making preserves or discussing politics, the parents of twelve-year-old Rado have missed their son growing up. His dad, a water-polo coach, believes that he is and always has been a good father. He is dumbfounded when his son starts to hang out with the local punks…

Bulgarian cinema is rare around here. Consequently, when we discover a first feature film such as Shelter, we watch it with a careful eye and we are able to appreciate the aesthetics of the film, shot exclusively indoor with fluids shots, as well as the storyline, which deals with a family conflict (father/son) reflecting the recent history of Bulgaria.
