Starring Academy Award nominee Javier Bardem (Before Night Falls) and acclaimed Spanish actors Cecilia Roth (All About My Mother), Ariadna Gil (Belle Epoque) and Jordi Molla (Blow), Second Skin is a film about a man torn between his loving family and his passion for a secret lover.
Set in modern-day Madrid, Alberto (Molla) appears to lead the perfect life; he has a successful career, a beautiful wife Elena (Gil) and a loving son. When Elena accidentally stumbles upon a hotel receipt in Alberto's jacket she suspects Alberto has been unfaithful. But what she never imagined was that Alberto was involved in a passionate affair with another man, Diego (Bardem), a sexy, confident young surgeon. When Elena discovers her husband's secret, she leaves him.
Desperate to save his idealistic life, Alberto tries to convince Elena - and himself - that his affair with Diego was a mistake. But Alberto soon learns his love for Diego is real. When Diego encourages Alberto to start a new life, one that is true to himself, this compelling triangle takes a turn that no one expects.
