Sometimes billed as ‘Beautiful Thing’ for surfers, ‘Shelter’ deftly deals with the conflict many gay men feel between responsibility to family and following your own dreams.
Recent high-school graduate Zach has one summer to reconcile the competing halves of his life. An aspiring artist, he lives in a blue-collar neighbourhood with his irresponsible sister, her five-year-old son, and their rarely-seen father.
Zach gave up his art school dreams to toil in a diner and help look after his much-loved nephew. With his best friend, Gabe, away at college, Zach draws, surfs, and skateboards by his lonesome.
When Gabe's novelist brother, returns home to recover from a broken heart, he and Zach alternate between riding the waves and encouraging each other to pursue their aspirations.
Shaun is gay, while Zach appears to be straight, but a casual kiss between the two soon leads to a secret relationship. Before the former returns to Los Angeles, the latter has to decide who he is--gay, straight, artist, cook, uncle, or father--and what he's going to do about it.
