Cyrano de Bergerac is a renowned swordsman and poet in Paris, with one not-so-small defect, his nose. This physical attribute has caused Cyrano to believe that no woman could ever love him. When his cousin, Roxane, wants to meet with him, he thinks she may express her love for him, only to discover that Roxane is in love with the handsome new soldier, Christian. She wants Cyrano to help bring her together with the target of her new affections... A Classic.
