Shelter Image FINAL

Mona, a Lebanese woman (Golshifteh Farahani), and Naomi, an Israeli Mossad agent (Neta Riskin) are sent to protect their informant who is recovering from plastic surgery for her new identity. They are together for two weeks in a quiet, unsuspecting apartment in Hamburg. In their safe house, they never expect what comes. The fortnight turns into an abyss, and their shelter is anything but protected. The intimacy of the relationship that develops between them is tested by the threat of terror. In this suspense-laden psychological thriller, beliefs are questioned and devastating decisions are forced.
