After discovering a speck of dirt on his feet King Hobu sends Minister Gobu on a quest to rid the land of dirt …in three days. If he fails he shall be forever exiled! No idea is too farfetched for Gobu, Colourful characters and unexpected landscapes emerge to tell the hilarious tale of the Invention of Shoes.
When King Hobu’s frustration is at tipping point, and nothing seems to be working, who will save the town from despair?
