Product Description:

Spain, 1931. The monarchy is ending, and the army and church reign supreme over Spanish life. In this tumultuous world, Fernando, a young soldier, decides to desert the army in hopes of finding a more pleasant way to live. He takes refuge with Manolo, a farmer, and when the farmer's four beautiful daughters arrive, each uses her own unique charms to seduce the willing--though exhausted--soldier.
