“Barefoot” is based on the idea that we often try to fit into a shell. We stereotype ourselves. Clothes or shoes become a way to present who we are. The problem is in this superficial sense we start to believe that we are one-sided and base our decisions and actions on our shoes. In our film, a young character – outside of norms – decides to collect shoes as a way of helping people look beyond of their own façade. The character does not aim to change anyone but tries to present a different option from what is expected of the presented individuals.
