A mysterious and attractive brunette (Scarlett Johansson) is traveling in a white van around Glasgow and its suburbs, meeting male hitchhikers and offering them a ride. Once hooked, fellow travelers find themselves in some black vacuum, drowning in a liquid, as smooth as oil. Their insides are removed and transported in an unknown direction, with only skin remaining from the bodies. As one might guess, the brunette is neither quite a woman nor quite a human being.

Filmed with hidden cameras with the participation of bystanders, and featuring mainly non-professional actors, Under the Skin's only star is Scarlett Johansson, whose protagonist looks at our habitual world with the eyes of a total stranger. With the horror of irrecognition, she observes the human world, which looks familiar and incomprehensible at the same time.
