An extremely strange group of people lives in a communal house in a godforsaken district. The occupants of the house - apart from the vegetarian in the cellar - share one great passion: they are all customers of the butcher's shop DELICATESSEN on the ground floor. One day the group is enhanced by the arrival of young man with an unusual hobby.
