Thin Skin is a music-infused darkly comedic drama about keeping it together when you're falling apart. A true story by the comedian and musician Ahamefule J. Oluo, Thin Skin is loosely based on the award-winning Off-Broadway show Now I'm Fine and the This American Life story “The Wedding Crasher” . It features Ahamefule J. Oluo, Annette Toutonghi, Ijeoma Oluo, Dwayne Kennedy, and Hari Kondabolu. Shot entirely on location in Seattle, Thin Skin is directed by Charles Mudede from a script written by Mudede, Ahamefule J. Oluo, and Lindy West. 
Ahamefule Joe Oluo's days are spent at a soul-deadening corporate job and his nights come alive behind a trumpet at Seattle jazz clubs. Struggling to climb out of the ruins of his broken marriage, Aham has to deal with endless bureaucracy, a boss trying to lead him to the Lord, and a mother who refuses to cut ties with his ex. 

After losing his home, Aham with his two young daughters, moves into his older sister Ijeoma’s one bedroom apartment along with their mother, a well-meaning white lady from Kansas, and her array of caged animals. One day, their estranged Nigerian father makes contact after years of silence which sends the family into a mad scramble for meaning. Pressed together in this vise of a home, the family struggles with adult life and the meaning of family.
