Araz lives at home with his mother, Marhamat, who is a witch. When he discovers that she has bewitched him to stay with her, rather than pursue the woman he loves, he turns to the village elders for help. As Araz strives to get rid of the spell and spends more time with his lover, his mother begins to grow weaker, forcing him to decide between his heart and his conscience. The debut feature from the Ark brothers, The Skin is an Iranian dark fantasy folklore drama musical about love, magic and superstition.
