Story : Irina receives a strange inheritance: a skin, a sort of talisman that is supposed to grant every wish. Without really believing it, the young girl asks to become rich, and for the absolute devotion of Halima, her only friend. And her wishes come true...

But this dream life soon turns into a nightmare. An enemy is on the prowl, ready to seize her talisman by any means necessary.

And with every wish she makes, the skin gradually sucks the life out of Irina, killing her little by little.
