When his father suddenly dies, Clay Crosby is devastated. It seems like he'll never be able to get over the loss. But everything changes when the boy puts on a pair of his father's wingtip shoes, which magically takes him back in time to experience his father's early life. As Clay gets to know his dad in the past, he gains an improved outlook on his own life, and, by changing the past, he wonders if it might be possible to create a better future.
A fortyish cancer-stricken, emaciated Frank Crosby and his fifteen-year-old son Clay, who is the healthful, youthful image of his father, are spending an afternoon enjoying the atmosphere of Venice Beach. They enter Oddities, a store where the gypsy woman owner gives them a pair of special wingtip shoes. Later that night in the hospital where Frank lay dying, he shares with Clay his memory of a postcard image: a golf course where people are playing and are leisurely sipping tea. Frank dies and leaves behind a distraught family: Clay, his little sister Maggie, and their mother Janice. Clay wistfully goes to his father's closet and finds the wingtips from earlier in the day. Putting them on, he is transported back in time and becomes his father as a child. He discovers he can travel back and forth in time just by putting on or taking off the shoes. Clay learns a great deal about his father's early years and is eager to learn more...
