Jesse Dufton is a British climber affected, from birth, by a degenerative disease of the sight. Currently he can only distinguish between light and dark. Despite his condition Jesse takes on the ambitious challenge of attempting to be the first blind person to climb the Old Man of Hoy, a 137-meter high sandstone monolith that practically emerges from the sea, in the Orkney Islands.
