Korte samenvatting Lie down with lions:

We follow Jane Lambert, an English interpreter living in 1981 Paris, who dates Ellis Thaler, oblivious that he is a spy for the CIA. When Lambert, an idealistic woman who supports pacifism and revolutionary liberation politics, finds out Ellis’s real occupation.

She leaves him to date a French doctor, Dr. Jean-Pierre Debout. She decides to follow his career to Afghanistan, where they will ostensibly give medical aid to a village of rebels uniting against the invasive Soviet regime. When she finds that Jean-Pierre is a Soviet spy, she is horrified. When she investigates, she finds that he has been providing medical aid to the rebels while giving the Russians more intel to kill them off.

Traumatized and caught in the middle of these two diametrically opposed men who want to kill each other, she tries to reclaim some of her agency and keep them from destroying themselves or each other.
