An upside-down world where women are in power and men look after the family. Domenico retells his story to his daughter starting with a tender memory. In a letter he re-lives the joys of her birth, her childhood, the dreams of a happy family, but also of the painful sacrifices of a father and husband, sacrifices that suffocated his real aspirations and desires.
Using archive footage, In Her Shoes rewrites History: men united in a liberation movement. The images from our past no longer tell of who we were, but create a challenge. What would men have done if they found themselves in women’s shoes? Would they have united to make their voices heard? And would the women have just looked on or would they have become aware of their privileges?
