Rick was one of thousands of young men who sought refuge in Canada to escape the Vietnam draft. But, when he takes in a traumatized young American soldier who is deserting his post in Iraq, Rick begins to understand how much our country has changed in forty years. Set in Tofino, BC, Shelter from the Storm is a play about love and loss that questions our notions of courage and cowardice.
