Storyline



©
Living skin tells the story of a group of boys with ages ranging from 12-17 years who are stuck in the leather tanneries of Cairo facing a tough daily routine there. Poisoned chemicals are not only running over the boys arms and legs, it directly goes into the streets of the neighborhood. Apart from the  horrendous health hazards the children face, all these boys suffer from their family’s living condition, poverty and lack of education. All of these combined make them easy targets for random police violence and injustice.
