British army major Hal Treherne is dispatched to Cyprus in 1956, taking his wife Clara and their young twin girls. There, they fight separate, but equally maddening, battles - Clara as an army wife with babies in an increasingly dangerous land, and Hal on the front lines where, yearning for firefights, he is instead haunted by his lack of control when torture and rape occur at the hands of his own men. After Clara narrowly avoids death, Hal makes a split-second decision with powerful implications for their future.
