Bart Hickey has been a car mechanic for 30 years. He runs his own workshop in Alsip, Illinois (USA). But he has never driven a car himself – because Bart Hickey is blind. He has one big dream: to step on the gas. Feel the rush of speed. Be free. His son Brendan and Mercedes-Benz make this dream come true. “My Father’s Dream”, an authentic, touching documentary, tells their story.
