In the Fire

Amber Heard stars in period thriller IN THE FIRE, being released on digital platforms in the UK & Ireland from 6 November.

Amber Heard (Aquaman) stars as a doctor battling against 19th-century superstitions and paranoia in IN THE FIRE, also starring Luca Calvani (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.), Eduardo Noriega (The Devil’s Backbone), and Sophie Amber (soon to be seen in The Last Girl with Antonio Banderas).

Directed by Cocor Allyn (No Man’s Land), IN THE FIRE is an intense and thrilling experience featuring a searing career-best lead performance from Heard as a woman attempting to convince a community that medicine can overcome what they perceive as ‘evil’.

SYNOPSIS: A doctor travels to a remote plantation to care for a disturbed boy who has inexplicable abilities. She ignites a war of science versus religion with the local priest who believes the boy is possessed by the Devil.

IN THE FIRE is available on digital platforms including Google, Apple TV, Sky and Amazon from 6 November
