A troubled soul confronts its demons.

SKUNK tells the story of Liam, a boy who grew up with lowlife, sex, alcohol and drug addicted parents, in a house where the basement served as his bedroom. He grew up to be a confused boy with an extremely violent western movie as the inspiration of his obsession; the scalping of small animals.

SKUNK is a story based on the book SKUNK by child psychiatrist Geert Taghon. This book and the film are based on real crimes children and youngsters have committed.
