what it’s about …
Poor orphan boy Lapitch is an apprentice to the bad tempered shoemaker Scowler. One day the two receive an important order to make red boots for a rich client’s son, only to turn out to be the wrong size. In a fit of rage Scowler takes it out on young Lapitch. Seething with anger, Lapitch leaves his newfound home. He puts on the red shoes, which surprisingly are the most perfect fit, and runs away. Along the road he boldly strikes out his way into the big outside world. When he meets the lovely circus performer Gita, he is no longer alone. With nowhere to sleep and nothing to eat, they find themselves on a curious journey full of fun, challenges and adventures.
The film is based on the children’s classic 1912 book by Ivana Brlić-Mažuranićs. It became the most beloved and successful family film of the last 25 years in Croatia. A vivid, colorful and light-hearted story, it tells about courage and friendship, and appeals to all ages and cultures..
