When successful surgeon Bruno Hamel’s otherwise uneventful world is torn apart by the brutal rape and murder of his eight-year-old daughter, Jasmine, he embarks on a quest for revenge against the perpetrator of this heinous crime. In a game of cat and mouse with the police detectives assigned to the case, Hamel successfully kidnaps the accused murderer as he is transported to the courthouse. With the roles now reversed, this father-turned-predator drives his prey to a remote cabin, where seven days of unspeakable torture await. He even keeps the police apprised of his plan, vowing to turn himself in after the execution of this alleged monster.
Director Daniel Grou (aka Podz) does a masterful job of immersing the audience in this dark and gritty world, deftly capturing the psyche of a sane man gone mad. Far more than your average torture flick, 7 Days is an eye-for-an-eye tale that is chock-full of tension, suspense, and inner conflict. —Sundance Film Festival
