Skinache tells the story of the 49 year old Johan Reijmer. An isolated system manager who's skin, the only thing that still embraces his body is starting to fall off because of a chronic lack of physical contact.
To find a solution he will have to go way out of his comfort zone: form hugging therapy to visiting prostitutes. All the while with the clock ticking.
As a system manager, he knows how to connect everybody using his computer network, but making a personal connection is something he just can't do.
