Apple is a tenacious 16-years-old who's been in and out of foster care since the age of eight, after her mother, a junkie prostitute, was arrested for a drug-related crime. Consistently abusive, her mother has tried her best to turn Apple into what she wants her to become, but Apple runs away determined to lead a better life. With no money and barely any possessions, she decides to track down her father who she has never before met and ask him to take care of her until she can do so herself. As it turns out, he is now a huge persona in the financial world, with millions of dollars to his name. Initially reluctant, he agrees to take her in, but when she learns that she has become pregnant after a brief tryst with a boy, it's clear that she's not welcome anymore. Seeking comfort elsewhere, will she finally find the family she's been wishing for?
'Gimme Shelter' is a shocking drama based on a true story and directed and written by Ron Krauss ('Amexica', 'Alien Hunter'). It's about family, how blood is not always thicker than water and finding what it means to be a mother. It will be released in the US on January 24th 2014.
