An emotionally charged poetic encounter between the filmmaker and other psoriasis sufferers on behalf of yet another 125 million people around the world who are silently enduring the secret pain of a very visible yet hidden disease. The film explores skin as a metaphor of strength, belief, belonging and alienations… a determined attempt of a healing journey.
