"Skinning" is a story of growing up, love and wrong choices made by the main character Novica. He is a young math genius who thinks that he will fulfill all his childhood dreams, and gain respect and love if he joins one of the supporter groups. Led by the charisma of the supporters' leader Relja and love towards his neighbour Mina, Novica becomes a skinhead. This film tells how little it takes for a young man to destroy his life and the lives of his loved ones. Skinning is an exciting story that, through the perspective of growing-up in Serbia nowadays, teenager loves, delusions, friendships and betrails, brings forward the question of the personal responsibility of young people themselves, as well as the society that pushes them into the hands of extreme ideologies. Main characters Novica and Relja are supporting characters from the Filipović's debut "Shaitan's Warrior". "Skinning" further developes the story of their friendship.
