Someone to watch over me
Alicia must come to terms with killing a man who tried to rape her.
Her conscience is troubled by the worry that she may have lead him on and whether it was necessary to kill him.
All this enfolds on the eve of the Spanish Civil War and follows her through her desperate struggle to survive the turmoil of that conflict.
She's helped by a Jazz pianist with whom she falls in love, but the odds of them both making it through the horror of the war are poor.
