Walk In My Shoes is a six-minute film about a homeless man called Lee. The film is a documentary about a stage play featuring actors recounting the stories about their lives told to them by homeless people in Chattanooga. Staged in the salvation Army’s recreate café, the play was conceived by the café’s artistic director, Tenika Dye.
