IN CINEMAS ONE NIGHT ONLY - MAY 10.
FROM THE ASHES follows the famous 1981 Ashes series, known to many as "Botham's Ashes", where cricketing legend Sir Ian Botham stole the show and brought England Ashes glory against all the odds.

FROM THE ASHES is an uplifting and remarkable tale of a summer that changed English sport forever.

In July 1981, rioting and discontent ruled the streets of England. On the playing fields, England was 1-0 down after two tests against old enemy, Australia, and iconic all-rounder Ian Botham had resigned as English captain, hours before being pushed. Watching on was opposing Captain, Kim Hughes, the Golden Boy of Australian sport. Brilliant and eloquent, he seemed to be a master of the universe.
With English cricket on the brink, bookmakers offered odds of 500-1 against an English win in the 3rd test. Yet, Botham would not lie down and rediscovered his cavalier flair in a series of remarkable, match-winning performances that defined him and saw The Ashes returned home.

Packed with match action and interviews with the chief protagonists -- including Sir Ian Botham, David Gower, Bob Willis, Rod Marsh, Kim Hughes and more -- From The Ashes is set over one tempestuous month and tells the story of one of the most remarkable sporting turnarounds in history.
