Synopsis 
(IM GLOBAL):Single mother and dedicated psychiatrist Cara Jessup (JULIANNE MOORE) centers her professional reputation on debunking the idea of "multiple personality syndrome," until she encounters a criminal mental patient (JONATHAN RHYS MYERS) whose powers defy rational explanation. This eerie contact with evil shatters her world, turning a cynic into an embattled true believer. The entity that inhabits the patient is eventually revealed to be a demonic preacher, stealing the souls of the dead in a grim, ageless obsession with "sheltering the faithless." When a soul theft results in the loss of Cara's father, Cara intuits that her own daughter is next and narrowly saves her from the brink of death. But is any victory in this arena ever certain? Directed by the innovative team of Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein (Storm), and giving a mountain voodoo tinge to the occult genre, SHELTER is a sophisticated and disturbing voyage into the heart of darkness.
