Abstract:

Spain, 1940. A mountain village is Carlos Tejada's first independent command. But he soon discovers that this "promotion" is a mixed blessing. There is no one to meet the train when he and his wife arrive, the officers of the small Guardia Civil post are far from welcoming. Is it just that they are suspicious of an officer with a Republican sympathizer for a wife? Tejada discovers that the officer he is replacing was shot to death and that the village is a center of smuggling and guerrilla activity. And then worse befalls: a new outbreak of the Civil War, financed from abroad, may be about to take place with his post as its epicenter. Tejada must ultimately find a way to reconcile his duty with his love for his wife.
