The jacket of a newly-graduated police officer, Marc, is found during a police raid on an underground rave by Detective Minks, who gives Marc an ultimatum: either join Minks' homicide unit or his career is over. It soon becomes clear that Monks needs Marc to access a world closed off to him, to help him find his missing daughter. As the homicide investigation gets underway, the burnt, partially flayed body of a woman is just the first corpse that bears a gruesome trait: the absence of large areas of skin. Discovering that 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 organization.
