Delta's taciturn protagonist is an unnamed and mysteriously wealthy young man (Lajko) who returns after a long absence to his native village in the Danube delta, where he and his half-sister (Orsi Toth) decide to build a house. The transgressive relationship of the siblings provokes a vengeful reaction amongst the locals. A film of considerable visual beauty which seeks to contrast the richness and resilience of nature with the bigotry and transience of humanity.
