“A masseuse from the city gets an unexpected welcome when she moves to a prejudiced small town.“SKIN DEEP is about the events which follow the arrival of a city masseuse hoping to start a new life in Carlton, an apparently sleepy and conventional country town. Her arrival is instigated by progressive-minded businessmen who are raising funds to invent a new image for the town, aimed at boosting a declining local economy. But conflicts and tensions arise amongst the local people.” - New Zealand Film Commission;; 31/01/2014.

Skin Deep was the first film funded by the newly established New Zealand Film Commission.
