Amber Heard plays a doctor tasked with saving a boy who could be the devil incarnate in the new trailer for In the Fire, one of the actress’ first films since her defamation trial with Johnny Depp.

“A doctor from New York (Amber Heard) travels to a remote plantation in the 1890s to care for a disturbed boy who seems to have inexplicable abilities,” Saban Films said of the Conor Allyn-directed thriller in a synopsis.

“She begins treating the child, but in doing so ignites a war of science versus religion with the local priest who believes the boy is possessed by the Devil and is the reason for all the village’s woes.”

Heard, in a pre-actors strike statement, added, “The film is a meditation on the almost supernatural powers of love told through a strong-willed and independent woman at the turn of the 20th century. I feel honored to be part of this labor of love and to be the lead in Conor Allyn’s vision. I feel lucky to be surrounded by such an amazing cast. They’re as dedicated and magical as the characters they play.”

In the Fire — due out in theaters and VOD on Friday the 13th of October, fittingly — marks Heard’s first film since her highly publicized defamation trial with Johnny Depp; the actress will also appear in the upcoming Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, though that blockbuster was largely filmed before the contentious case brought forth by her ex-husband.
