Synopsis: “Left Foot” was made by hand; the characters, the environment, and the stop motion process. The film’s motto is “Be satisfied with what you have, perhaps you have what others don’t”.
The film starts with a rich man getting out of his luxury car, standing in his precious clothes in front of a shoeshine. As the shoeshine begins his work, his mind drifts off, imagining himself in the rich man’s shoes, living a life of luxury, until he is shocked to find out that the rich man’s left foot is missing.
