Film details


Guy Malyon leaves his Cumberland roots for Cambridge University, where he falls for aristocratic but hedonistic Gilda Besse. Their passionate affair even includes other lovers, such as the alluring Mia whom they ultimately share. The story follows the couple across Europe, from decadent Paris to London's impoverished East End; from the killing fields of Spain's Civil War to occupied France... until finally a dangerous secret threatens to tear them apart. www.britfilms.com
