Ted Allan, a twenty-one year old Canadian reporter covering the Spanish Civil War falls in love with Gerda Taro, a beautiful, red-haired photographer, in Madrid. She’s not only four years his senior, but also the girlfriend of the famous war photographer, Robert Capa. Capa leaves her in Ted’s care when he’s called to Paris, and they spend the time together falling in love. Ted accompanies her to the battlefield, and is with her when she is killed. Gerda’s memory haunts him until the day he dies.
