"Opening with a sequence that shows how children and grown-ups abuse footwear, the film then pictures a typical Canadian shoe factory. The camera details the shoemaking process from the selection of the leather through several of the painstaking operations in crafting a shoe to the finished product. At every stage the care and craftmanship demamded are pointed up and explained. Also available in a French version."
