In a strange abandoned amusement park, someone wanders through a hostile environment, a place that looks contaminated. Meanwhile, at the edge of the park, a recluse somehow survives inside an old electrical transformer. Whatever he ran away from gradually catches up with him, even in that place where he thought he was sheltered. Through their common loneliness, these two turn out to be not so unfamiliar with each other. One has stayed outside. The other has deliberately secluded himself. They feel each other’s presence but can’t tell if that presence is real or fantasized. They may never know.
Gimme Shelter is an ecological fable that interrogates our ability or failure to take action, our idleness in the face of major risks, impending disasters, etc.
