It's the story of a boy who grew up on an isolated Spanish island and became one of the world's most influential shoe designers. The film brings to the viewers Manolo Blahnik's love for his art and shows how each new pair of shoes created by the master takes wings behind him.

In addition to glorifying shoe design, the filmmakers take a look at Manolo's energetic inner world, engagingly revealing the essence of a man whose name needs no introduction, but who himself has remained quite a mystery. In addition to the artist himself, Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Naomi Campbell, Iman, Rupert Everett, Sofia Coppola, André Leon Talley, Paloma Picasso, Eva Herzigova, John Galliano and other well-known figures from the world of fashion, film and entertainment appear in the film.

Fashion designer Xenia Joost will make an introduction to the film screenings.
