Two things threaten a grad student's dissertation on Virginia Woolf: her hot new girlfriend and her own dark past. Confronted by echoes of sexual violence in Woolf's text, grad student Marais races to write herself into a happier future. Her creative and classroom work grow inventive—even sensual experience becomes a medium for discovery—as she strives for a love greater than any she's known before. But after you learn to guard against life, can you open up again?

SKIN is directed by Jessi D. Hill, with original music by Hope Singsen, Bob Parins, Dillon Kondor and Micah Burgess.
