Directors Ian & Dominic Higgins Producer Nigel Martin Davey
Dave Heeley has decided that he wants to follow in the footsteps of renowned explorer and adventurer Sir Ranulph Fiennes and complete one of the toughest marathons in the world, the “Sevens” - seven marathons on seven continents in seven days. The only problem is that Dave is completely blind.
Through flashbacks we learn how young Dave, an aspiring athlete struggles to come to terms with his inevitable fate and the motivation that leads him to rediscover his love of running.
7 DAYS tells the heart-warming inspirational story of "Blind Dave's" triumph over adversity.
