“El is an aspiring sneaker designer from Queens who works as a stock boy in the shoe store that once belonged to his late mother. He hides his artistic talent from his overburdened stepfather and two mean-spirited stepbrothers who constantly thwart any opportunity that comes his way. With a little nudge from his best friend and a sprinkle of Fairy Godfather magic, El finds the courage to use his talent to pursue his dream of becoming a ‘legit’ sneaker designer in the industry. El is now ready to lace up and dream big.”
Sneakerella is a re-imagination of the classic Cinderella story written by Charles Perrault in contemporary New York.
Just when El is about to lose hope in his passion, he is encouraged by his best friend and Kira King to move closer to his dream.
