Soldier and poet Cyrano de Bergerac is in love with Roxane but he's too ashamed to admit it because of his big nose. When a cadet, Christian, falls for Roxane, he asks for Cyrano's help in sharing his feelings. Cyrano writes love letters signed with Christian's name, and Roxane doesn't realize that it's Cyrano's words she falls for. She falls in love with Christian, and Cyrano continues to keep the other man's secret, even after tragedy strikes.
