United tells the gripping story of how one team's devastating loss in Munich inspired a community to rise up and bring back the glory that is Manchester United. Based on the true story of Manchester United's celebrated "Busby Babes", the youngest side ever to win the Football League and the 1958 Munich air crash that claimed eight of their number.

This moving drama stars Jack O'Connell as the young talented footballer, Bobby Charlton, David Tennant as coach Jimmy Murphy and the highly respected yet incredibly pressuring boss Matt Busby played by Dougray Scott.

Released on DVD from 8th August 2011, Revolver Entertainment will bring youback to post war era when the inspiration of a nation laid on the hands' of heart throbs "Busby Babes".

It's 1956 and the UK has found its first heart throbs of the post-war era in the "Busby Babes" - a good looking and prodigiously talented team of young football players, including young teenager Bobby Charlton (Jack O'Connell: Harry Brown, This is England) and team mates Duncan Edwards (Sam Claflin: Pirates Of The Caribbean), Mark Jones (Thomas Howes: Downton Abbey) and Eddie Colman (Philip Hill-Pearson: Shameless).

Coach Jimmy Murphy, played by the superbly talented David Tennant (Dr Who) and the revered but intimidating boss Matt Busby (Dougray Scott: Mission Impossible II, Hitman) guide the club to glory after glory.

By 1958 the Babes are riding high on the crest of a wave until the scheduling of aEuropean Cup Tie in Belgrade demands that Busby charter a special flight to return the team to Manchester in time for Saturday's kick off. During a refuelling stop at Munich airport, the arctic weather closes in. On a third attempt at take off, the plane never leaves the ground crashing into a fuel dump. Twenty three people on board the aircraft die as a result of their injuries, including eight of the Busby Babes...

The disaster sends shockwaves around the world. While Manchester mourns its sporting heroes, the surviving players are devastated, unsure whether they will ever play again. Critically injured, Busby is riddled with guilt about his decision to charter the plane and with no insurance on the players, the powerhouse that was Manchester United seems doomed.

With its superbly talented cast and powerful script drawn from first hand interviews with survivors and their families, United tells how the extraordinary spirit of a community rebuilt the team in the aftermath of the crash, providing a powerful tribute to a tragedy that spurred the beginning of the global legend that is Manchester United.
