Kira Mabon lives her life to the full. She is young, beautiful and happy until she discovers a spot of dried-up skin on her hand. Terrified by the decay of her body, she desperately searches for a cure, but the disease keeps spreading and nobody is able to help her. Devastated, Kira finds comfort in her neighbor, the very sensual Sophia. Attracted by her bubbly personality and no-nonsense attitude, she starts falling in love with Sophia. As the disease progresses, Kira’s options run out, but a terrifying discovery changes everything; she is able to replace her own dried-up skin with the healthy skin of others. Kira seems to have found a way to stay young and beautiful by sacrificing innocent lives, but the disease keeps coming back and the danger of being discovered by the police or her newly found lover Sophia is increasing with each victim. Kira has to choose; continue taking the skin of other girls or face the inevitable decay of her body.
