SKIN, the screenplay, was born of Peter Himmelman's masterpiece concept album by the same name. (1994 Epic Records)
coming-of-age story, laced around fourteen timeless songs, the enduring impact of SKIN is undeniable.
High school student, Shelby Sherman, gets the CD as a gift from her father
at the beginning of her senior year. A writer and music critic, her obsession with the album, that mysteriously mirrors her tumultuous final year, frames this compelling coming-of-age story.
