A historical family saga spanning four generations, from 1912, Kent, England, to Spain and its 1936–39 civil war. Celia and Ernesto’s two sons march under opposing banners, whilst their daughters take different paths, one to the Catholic Church and the other to the battlefields.
In exile, Celia and Ernesto can only wait and pray for their children and their safe return home, ignorant of the re-emergence of an old foe, more dangerous than the bloody war that has engulfed their children.
