"It is through my body that I am in the world, that I am connected with others. If I am no longer my body, what am I? Where does this desire come from to want to see what the body is and if I am 'inside'?"- Marina de Van

In my skin (Dans ma peau) is a haunting and riveting exploration of the human body as a boundary - and a battleground - between the individual and the often unreachable world outside. After suffering deep gashes to her leg from an accidental fall, Esther (Marina de Van), a young research analyst, becomes preoccupied with her body and skin, especially her wounds. At first she merely caresses her arms, pinches her excess skin, or traces the cuts on her legs, but it isn't long before she is carving wounds directly and aggressively into her own body. Her boyfriend (Laurent Lucas) becomes understandably concerned and angry, but his inability to understand forces Esther into reclusion to explore her new-found practice. With increased urgency, she turns an unapologetic knife or razor upon her own skin.
