Skin Deep tells the story of Romo a 15-year-old mixed race boy,
who struggles to deal with who he is. Haunted by memories of
racial abuse and violence suffered throughout his childhood, Romo
has taken to concealing his mixed race identity and begins to hang
around with a gang of overtly racist white youths. The film
examines the situations that combine to push Romo's internal
conflict to the limit. He faces himself in the mirror - two
cultures, two identities. Irreconcilable.
