'I always say that Nick was born with a skin too few' , tells actress Gabrielle about her brother, the English singer-songwriter Nick Drake (1948-1974). It took twenty posthumous years for his music to gain recognition. The documentary 'A Skin Too Few' approaches the silent landscapes, locations, people and music in the life of this unorthodox loner in the hope of understanding his state of mind. Nick Drake is one of rock's most tragically romantic figure. There were only 26 years between his birth and his death: a time span that for many would be far too short to develop a talent, or realize an ambition or dream. Nick Drake captured time, beauty, loss, and wistful desires with precision in subtle songs.
