Dead Skin is told from the perspective of seventeen-year-old Andie. She is a human sponge for connection, unaware of the neglect she's endured from all spheres of her life, causing her immense intimacy issues; a simple touch to her hand sends Andie into a spiral of hyper-sexuality and self-hatred simultaneously. Approaching her eighteen birthday, Andie decides that she needs to find her mother to cure her maternal pain. Andie sees visions of her mother everywhere and plays out how her mother and father met in the convenience store she works at. This plot is mirrored by Andie falling for her best friend Maggie (played by Ashlee Juergens), her first queer love, in the same convenience store.
