Toronto-based Cinemavault has picked up from Paul Allen's Vulcan Productions the drama Where God Left His Shoes starring John Leguizamo.

Salvatore Stabile directed the take of a down-and-out boxer who takes his young son on a journey around New York City to look for a home on Christmas Eve.

The film premiered at Tribeca 2007 where it won the Humanitas screenwriting award for a film developed or shown at Sundance.

IFC will release Where God Left His Shoes in the US in December.
