A filmmaker with a vision finds that vision delayed due to tumultuous changes in his life in this independently produced feature. 7 Year Zigzag is the autobiographical tale of lead Richard Green, who narrates -- in rhyme -- his efforts to get a swing-disco musical made in the late '70s, only to see it ripped off by the 1980 debacle Xanadu. Discouraged but not defeated, he takes gigs as a musician in London and as a corporate drone to see his dream through. 7 Year Zigzag contains no spoken dialogue other than Green's musical voice-overs.
