A gifted shoe designer, Nate, is forced to break free from a family who want to cheapen his art for their own commercial gain. “The Big Shoe” is a
touching an sexy love story and a classic boy-to-man coming-of-age tale, with the colorful backdrop of the fashion/shoe industry. When a muse is
strategically ‘planted’ along Nate’s path by his mother, he begins to embrace the mad “logic” of the creative drive, allowing his own deep impulses
and wishes to finally be expressed and experienced. He’s revealing to her and to the world his secret. And, while it may make no real practical
“sense” to do his art (shoemaking), Nate must.
