Before Nike and Adidas, there was the Hi-Jo! Here is a Brooklyn tale set back in the day about a young Italian-American shoemaker on the verge of greatness. News comes from his cousins in Italy that they have obtained the first automated vulcanizing machinery to produce the gym shoe called the Hi-Jo. All Frank needs is $50,000 to ship and set up a factory in Brooklyn and the help from the neighborhood, his friends and family to achieve the dream of a lifetime. Everything seems to be in place until his wife walks in and asks for a divorce!
