Feet. Male feet. Female feet. Large ones. Small ones. They occupy every waking hour of podiatrist, Dr. Vincent Pointsetta’s, life. But Vincent longs for adventure and the romance of foreign lands. When a client gives Vincent tickets to a play in lieu of payment, Vincent foregoes his evening’s plans of doing paperwork with his lovesick assistant, Sally. Finding the play even more dismal than his own life, Vincent attempts to leave, but the cast and crew have other ideas. Vincent soon finds himself embroiled in an adventure that could only happen Behind the Curtain.
