The true life drama comes to UK DVD and Digital in December.

Debuting at festivals over two years ago, director Edward Zwick's based on true events legal drama Trial by Fire finally makes its way to UK screens this December.

The film tells the true story of Cameron Todd Willingham (Jack O'Connell), a young heavy metal fan sentenced to death for a fire that claimed three lives. Convinced of his innocence, Elizabeth Gilbert (Laura Dern) spends 12 years fighting for Willingham's release.

Trial by Fire is on UK DVD/Digital from December 7th.

Check out the trailer below.


The official synopsis reads:

Based on a true story, Trial By Fire shows the unlikely bond between an imprisoned death row inmate and a mother of two from Houston, Texas, who fights for his freedom while facing staggering odds and a seemingly corrupt system.


Cameron Todd Willingham, a poor, uneducated heavy metal fan with a violent streak and a criminal record, is convicted of arson-related triple homicide in 1992. During his 12 years on death row, Elizabeth Gilbert, an improbable ally, uncovers questionable methods and illogical conclusions in his case, and battles with the state to expose buried evidence that could save his life.
