Dark and stylish

When the police raid an underground rave, newly graduated police officer Marc has to make himself (and his drugs) scarce.

However, his stash is uncovered by Detective Minks who presents Marc with an ultimatum: join the homicide team in a particularly gruesome and dangerous serial murder case or lose his fledgeling career.

Marc is soon aware that Minks' missing daughter holds the key to a grisly trade in decorated human skin and faces a sole operation to protect the innocent in danger and expose the head of the organisation...

Dark and stylish, this brooding psychological 'Se7en' style thriller will make your skin crawl as it twists and turns its way towards an unforgettably chilling climax.
