"HEADING TO THE GREAT WALL"
Chinese legend has it, the Great Wall was built over the centuries on the blood of those who died and were buried beneath it. In recent times, Chairman Mao told his people that to be a hero, one must reach the Great Wall. For Rick Hansen, Don Alder, Amanda and Mike Reid, Lee Gibson and others, climbing the Wall would prove to a skeptical world that their dreams mattered. In this scene, they awake early in a village at the base of the Great Wall with the knowledge press from China and around the world will soon soon descend to witness their climb. Unnerved by Ivan, the only reporter to arrive early, the team push to the Wall, while Amanda worries Rick's fatigue and the steepness of the climb could end his dream.
