What happened to Carolyn Harper? Part suburban nightmare, part neon-soaked teenage fever dream, this tantalizing mystery traces the wave of fear and distrust that spreads across a small Midwestern town in the wake of a high school girl’s mysterious disappearance.

As the loneliness and darkness lurking beneath the veneer of everyday life gradually comes to light, a collective awakening seems to overcome the town’s teenage girls—gathering in force until it can no longer be contained.

Unfolding in a hallucinatory haze of lushly surreal images, ‘Knives and Skin’ is a one-of-a-kind coming-of-age noir that haunts like a half-remembered dream.
