Skin follows the story of Byron Widner, a man raised by skinheads who risks his life to leave a white supremacy group in order to become a better person and have a chance at a new normal life with Julie. Widner was the subject of the 2011 documentary Erasing Hate which is about his efforts in removing his numerous racist facial tattoos. The documentary was written and directed by Bill Brummel.

The cast also includes Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring, Godzilla: King of the Monsters) as Shareen Krager, Danielle MacDonald as Julie Larsen, Mike Colter (Girls Trip, The Defenders) as Daryle Lamont Jenkins, and Bill Camp (The Leftovers) as Fred Krager.
