A new film charting the story of a man who ran seven marathons in seven days – in spite of not being able to see.
The remarkable story of ‘Blind Dave’ Heeley has been brought to the screen in a new short film by Ian and Dominic Higgins.
The pair have directed the piece, that’s been produced by Nigel Martin Davey.
