Vanessa Hudgens stars as a pregnant teenager who runs away from her abusive mother (Rosario Dawson) and is rejected by her Wall Street father (Brendan Fraser). The girl finds herself on a desperate journey of survival and she will find true family where she least expects it. It looks like Hudgens gives a tour-de-force performance and it could be the real breakout role that she needs to escape her "High School Musical" roots.
The film also stars James Earl Jones and Ann Dowd.
"Gimme Shelter" opens in theaters on January 24, 2014.

With gained confidence, and the warmth of her new home, Apple breaks from her inhibiting past, embracing the future with clarity and hope."
