The filmmaker that brought you "On the Wings of Men," Bahamian Calvin Dwight Harris presents the trailer for his next feature-length documentary film, "Perfect Feet."

"Perfect Feet" will take you on a dramatic journey to explore the importance of one's feet and delves into the foot care and shoe industries. Whether it's the right fitting shoe, foot fetishes, athletic socks, what is sexy and what is not, this film covers it all...even smelly and ugly feet!

This film also highlights diabetes,  an issue that is close to Harris' heart, as he is a Type 2 diabetic and lost his oldest brother Dennis Harris to the disease in 2001.
