Posted Mon Feb 24, 2014 at 12:00 PM PST by

The acclaimed drama from Ron Krauss is headed for Blu-ray in April. You can pre-order this Blu-ray here.

In an early announcement to retailers, Lionsgate has revealed 'Gimme Shelter' is coming to Blu-ray on April 29.

'Gimme Shelter' depicts the story of Agnes "Apple" Bailey (Vanessa Hudgens) a tough, street-wise teen who flees life with her drug addicted mother to find the wealthy father she's never known. But when her father's new prim & proper family find out Apple is pregnant, she is pressured to conform to their expectations and runs away again. Apple must rely on her own survival skills on the streets, until she meets the kindly Father McCarthy who helps direct her to a shelter for pregnant teens. Apple's unbreakable spirit enables her to fight against the odds to find redemption, and ultimately create a family to finally call her own.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include a making-of featurette and deleted scenes.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.99.
