After a spontaneous and inexplicable kiss between her and co-worker Markus the two then embark upon their own emotional journey; one that raises all kinds of questions. Can we really choose how we rediscover our taste for life? Marvelling at their newfound love, Nathalie and Markus end up running away to give their relationship a fighting chance. DELICACY is a story of rebirth but it is also a tale of the singularity of love.
