A troubled teenager embraces a dangerous subculture of hate in this hard-hitting Dutch drama. Frankie (Robert de Hoog) is 17 years old and growing up aimless in the late '70s. Frankie doesn't want to do much with his life besides listening to punk rock and getting high with his best friend, Jeffrey (Juliann Ubbergen), and while he has a close relationship with his mother, Anna (Sylvia Poorta), he clearly doesn't care for his dad, Simon (John Buijsman). When Anna is diagnosed with cancer, Frankie becomes distraught and is soon falling into delinquency. As Frankie develops a taste for violence and vandalism, he's welcomed into a gang of racist skinheads and begins joining them on their periodic raids. But while Frankie finds acceptance with his new friends, it drives him away from Jeffrey, who is black, and opens the wounds between himself and Simon, who is Jewish and spent part of his youth in a Nazi concentration camp. Skin was a rare theatrical film project for television director Hanro Smitsman.
