The(ir) Blurb...

Luke is bright, politically aware boy who wants to grow up to be like his idol, former Canadian Prime Minister 'Pierre Trudeau'. He has a good relationship with his mother, Rita. When Rita takes Luke out shopping to buy a new pair of shoes, it is with trepidation and a bit of reluctance that she agrees to the pair that he wants: pink Converse runners. She is afraid of the reaction of all the other children at school to the color. Will Luke's classmates call him a sissy like Rita fears, and even if they do, does it matter?
