Paraíso en llamas

In Norway invaded by the German army, Gerda Grepp remembers her experience as a photojournalist in the Spanish Civil War and, in particular, the days she spent in Malaga before being conquered by the Francoist army. Two men marked those days in a besieged city: the writer and journalist Arthur Koestler and Sir Peter Chalmers-Mitchell, who welcomes them into his villa while the world they had come to witness is crumbling.
