Adapted from Edmond Rostand's 1897 classic, the story concerns the soulful poet/philosopher Cyrano, a cadet in the French Army, who falls for the beautiful, strong-willed Roxane, but is too ashamed of his large nose to tell her. When he learns that she loves Christian, his handsome, dim-witted comrade, he pens poetry and love letters to Roxane on Christian's behalf. After many years, the truth is revealed. Will love or beauty conquer all?
