When the police raid an underground rave, Marc, a newly-graduated police officer, has to make himself - and his drugs - scarce. But, his jacket is found by Detective Minks who gives him an ultimatum: either Marc joins Minks' homicide team, or his career is over. It soon becomes clear that Minks needs Marc to access a world closed off to him, to help find his missing daughter. When the investigation gets underway, the burnt body of a partially flayed woman is just the first corpse that bears an unusually gruesome trait: the absence of large areas of skin. Discovering that a perverse form of art collecting - an international trade in decorated human skin -is in operation, it is now up to Marc to protect those in danger and to unveil the identity of the head of the organisation.
