From Edward Zwick, the acclaimed director of "Legends of the Fall" and "Glory," "Trial by Fire" tells the true-life story of Cameron Todd Willingham (Jack O'Connell), a death row inmate convicted for the arson-related killing of his three children. While awaiting execution on death row, Willingham finds an unlikely advocate in Elizabeth Gilbert (Laura Dern), a mother of two who fights to expose suppressed evidence and testimony that support Willingham’s claims of innocence and may be able to save his life.
