Skins Redux comprises of 3 two-part films in which we revisit familiar faces from previous series. Each film has its own distinct feel and flavour. With characters from series 1 now in their early 20s, themes are hard-hitting and emotional at times; identities are in flux and in one way or another, circumstances are chaotic. The series aims to appeal to established Skins fans and to viewers new to the show. The two-part films should function as stand-alone drama pieces even for those with no prior knowledge of the characters. Skin is aimed at young people but has an increasing crossover appeal to older audiences. The show moves with the times, and reflects the times, but is not preoccupied with trends or fashion fads. It has edge because the energy of the programme derives from young contributors and writers. 'SKINS FIRE' Effy (Kaya Scodelario) has a dead end job as a receptionist for a leading London Hedge Fund. But as she stumbles across crucial financial information relating to a troubled deal and embarks on an affair with her wealthy boss, she finds out that she has bitten off more than she can chew. Her flatmate Naomi (Lily Loveless) tries to stop Effy from ruining her life, but Effy cannot be reached; until tragedy strikes. 'SKINS PURE' Cassie (Hannah Murray) is adrift, alone and invisible in London, trying to make sense of her life. Slowly she realises that someone is following her. Cassie turns towards the unknown. A strange and poignant friendship is carved out of mutual loneliness, but can it survive exposure to the real world? 'SKINS RISE' Cook (Jack O'Connell) has a job delivering drugs to Manchester Revellers. When he is asked to help his employer's girlfriend find a house and finds that he is irresistibly attracted to her, he sets off a train of events which will lead him into a world of savage revenge and a confrontation with his own violent past.
