PREMIER (HUNGARY): 2008.

A taciturn young man returns to the wild, isolated landscape of the Delta. It is a labyrinth of waterways, small islands and over-grown vegetation, where the villagers are cut off from the outside world. The young man, who has been away since early childhood, is introduced to a sister he never knew he had. Together they build a house on stilts in the middle of the river, far away from everyone else. The silence between them grows. Grows into a dangerous affection: love.
One day, they invite the villagers over to share a meal together, but the coarse locals do not accept their "unnatural" relationship.
