Sinopsis:

Ispod kože govori Keesje, petnaestogodišnjem introvertu. Ona i njeni prijatelji, Lize i Dunja, plivaju zajedno u plivačkom timu. Izvana to izgleda kao savršeno prijateljstvo, ali ispod površine se kriju stalne tenzije između djevojaka. Keesje se plaši odbacivanja i čezne da održi svoju poziciju u grupi. Dozvoljava sebi da bude uvučena u pokvareno ponašanje Lize i Dunje, ali postepeno se otuđuje od sebe. Dok se tenzije povećavaju među njima, Keesje gubi viziju o sebi. Iako pokušava da potisne svoje frustracije, prelom je neizbježan.
