PLOT : Between Ferrara and Rovigo, between the waters and the fog, a group of poachers from Romania engage in illegal fishing. Among them is Elia, a local man who had left years before. His path soon crosses that of Osso, a volunteer who, together with his sister and her association, works to defend the local ecosystem. Between commitment and survival, poachers and volunteers
confront each other, while Osso's ex-girlfriend Anna, who approaches Elia, also gets in the way. Delta, Michele Vannucci's second directorial project after the good debut of Il più grande sogno, is an expression of Groenlandia production's 'core mission', that is imagining an Italian genre cinema that knows how to interpret the country and the territory in all its specificity.
