The drama Firebird arrives for digital purchase and on VOD in the United States and Canada June 3 from Lionsgate.
Directed and cowritten by Peeter Rebane (Tashi Delek, Robbie Williams: Fans Journey to Tallinn) and cowritten by actor Tom Prior (Kingsman: The Secret Service, The Theory of Everything), Firebird is based on true events during the Cold War at the height of 1970s Communist rule. The story follows a handsome young soldier who embarks on a clandestine love affair with a charismatic fighter pilot newly stationed at his Air Force base. Set in a time when men in uniform caught having a sexual affair were dealt a severe punishment, this is a story of two men who risked their freedom — and their lives — as their loyalties were torn between love and service to their country.
Special features include a making-of documentary.
