Unlike the former Philippine First Lady, Imelda is indifferent towards shoes. To her, they are fraught with the bittersweet nostalgia of childhood, one that was marred by a difficult relationship with her shoe-maker father, Romeo. Growing up, he had made all of hers shoes. Now a mature woman, she receives a pivotal call from the morgue, spurring her search for the perfect pair of shoes for her dead father. The more she searches for the perfect shoes, the more she finds herself.
