Inside the claustrophobic scenery of a fancy apartment in the city of Frankfurt three men and a woman lock themselves in for ten days. Oskar and Julia are a couple. They have sex and let themselves be filmed. Benjamin and Bastian are behind the camera, trying to get pictures of absolute intimacy. Closeness as it can only be found among lovers. But can intimacy be captured? The presence of the camera creates conflicts between the four protagonists and lets the whole project change towards an unexpected direction. The attempt to create a movie about closeness and love in times of pornography threatens to fail and to become a porno itself. As while the four persons are trying to get close with another, the pictures tell their own story... "The great ephemeral skin" sounds the differences between documentation and fiction, closeness and distance, staging and chance and asks for the meanings of intimacy, the body and love in times of omnipresent pornography and of advancing functionalisation and differentiation of sexuality.
