This animation is inspired by the fairy tale “The Red Shoes,” in which a girl is charmed and entrapped by a pair of red shoes. Her only means of escape is to cut off her feet. In this piece, a naïve and innocent girl meets her Prince Charming in red clothes. She puts her trust in him and accepts his gift without realizing the concomitant danger. She lives “ever after,” having escaped this horror, but her life is permanently altered.
