Description A black comedy about white terror, Delectable Shelter is a no-holds-barred portrait of the privileged, facing the end of the world as they know it. In a bunker deep within the earth, five survivors plan a utopian society. Their dreams are lavish, their visions grand, and their aspirations (somewhat) noble. But saving the world is the easy part, the hard part will learning to share it with those they thought were beneath them. Meanwhile, a reverent choir sings classical renditions of love songs from the 1980s.
