Storyline

Successful businessman Paul Radin invites three people from his past to join him in the underground bunker he's built under his commercial office building. All three have had major influence on him though not the kind that made him what he is today. His former military commander had him court-martialed; his former teacher ridiculed and humiliated him in class after she caught him cheating; and his church Minister who ruined his reputation after he drove a girl to suicide. All he wants from them is one thing: a brief apology. The impact of what they've done is far greater than it appears. Written by garykmcd

No Shelter from the Storm
25 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite episodes. It is about selfishness and human dignity. It is about a man who has mistreated everyone he has come in contact with. It's about a man who grows rich financially but bankrupt morally. The reason I like this so much is that the people who are the "oppressors" are really the heroes. The school teacher, the military man, the priest. All have led their lives with honor but are asked to pay the ultimate price, though they have done nothing. They stay true to themselves and that's what this is all about. It's about justice and fairness and honor. It's about what we need to be to maintain our humanity in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. It's about love and compassion and what is right with the world.
