    • Synopsis
    • DELIGHT is the second in a trilogy of feature films by Gareth Jones exploring the connections between human creativity and libido.
      On the run from a marriage in crisis, former war photographer Echo goes looking for her one-time lover and comrade-in-arms, who has retired to obscurity in deepest West Wales. Discovering he has taken his own life, she falls into a passionate love affair with his son, strewing chaos among the small community as she stirs up past betrayals.
      But raising ghosts is a dangerous game, and sexual abandon also triggers the unravelling of a trauma Echo has long buried for the sake of her children, which now threatens to tear their lives apart.
      Can eros bring a healing of trauma, or merely its repetition?
      What price delight?
