After making his fortune in the city, a quiet young man returns to his isolated village in the Danube delta. It is a labyrinth of waterways, small islands and over-grown vegetation. Where the villagers are cut off from the outside world. He meets his adult sister for the first time; she is frail, timid and slight but decides to abandon her life with her mother and stepfather at the village bar to join him building a house in the middle of the marsh. Their close relationship soon becomes the subject of village gossip and their house warming party leads to tragic consequences.
Touching on the most taboo of subjects, this quiet, beautifully paced tale looks at human nature and the dilemma of following your heart or obeying social conventions.
