Storyline

Dermatology professor Marie-Claire (Brigitte Poupart) is embarking on a new project linking skin cells and sexuality, when unexpected events disrupt her professional, family and intimate life. The skin's natural sweetness and secretions reveal a great deal about a woman's sexuality - what is beautiful, complex and subversive - as well as how men aesthetically respond to it all.
