This short student film, “My Shoes”, proves that you should never judge a book by its cover.

One boy is poor and wears tattered clothes and has holes in his shoes, while the other rich boy has brand-new sneakers and is clean-kept. Upset that he doesn’t have new shoes like the rich boy, the poor boy wishes they could switch places. Magically, his wish comes true. But not everything is as it first seems….

A raggedly dressed boy wearing a torn pair of pair of sneakers sits on a bench in a park feeling uncomfortable with his tennis shoes. He wanders in the park and when he returns, there is a boy with a brand new pair of sneakers sat on the bench. The ragged boy goes to another place with envy and wishes that he were the other boy. His wish is somehow granted and he switches body with the other boy and learns his health condition.
