In a dystopian cigarette-factory, male shoes of leather and metal rule supreme and the red high-heeled female shoes live in bondage. Killing one of her captors, a female shoe dons his black leather and ventures into the upper echelons of the factory – but the system is not easily escaped and the cycles of violence perpetuate themselves. An analogy of class and gender struggles, the used materials engage in a tactile dialogue recalling the works of Jan Švankmajer. At times ghastly and upsetting, always arresting and inventive.
