"It's amazing how one small thing can set off such an interesting chain of events."
More prophetic words have never been spoken in a world where love, sex, race, and betrayal are more than SKIN DEEP.
Anthony is a successful computer engineer in Silicon Valley where he seems to have the perfect life: a beautiful home secluded in the hills, stock options worth millions, and a lovely wife, Victoria. Conflict enters their relationship when Anthony expresses to Victoria that their sex life is practically non-existent. Also, Anthony is black and Victoria is white, which doesn't sit well with Michael, Anthony's best friend since childhood and a surrogate older brother.
The film takes place over the course of a day as Anthony, Victoria, Michael and his wife, Sarah, spend the afternoon dining, drinking, and soaking in the hot tub. During lunch, Michael, plays his well-used race card to make Victoria uncomfortable. Despite the rise in tensions, things appear to be going well until one of the women is found dead in the hot tub. Events go from tragic to dangerous as racism, paranoia, and a secret mistress come into play. The result is a high-stakes mystery, where everyone seems to know exactly who is most guilty.
In the world of SKIN DEEP, not all suspects are created equal.
