World On Fire is described as ‘an adrenalised, emotionally gripping and resonant drama following the first year of the Second World War’ told through the intertwining fates of ordinary people from Britain, Poland, France, Germany and the US as they grapple with the effect of the war on their lives. Filming has already taken place in Prague and other filming locations include Manchester, London, Paris and Berlin.
