    Cyrano de Bergerac is the story of a dashing but big-nosed French cadet whose self-doubt prevents him from wooing the lovely Roxane. Instead, the clever and intellectual Cyrano helps his less witty friend Christian woo Roxane in his stead. Even after Christian's death in a battle with the Spanish, which Cyrano heroically wins, he maintains the lie to honor his friend's memory. Cyrano dies himself years later, still preserving the lie due to his own guilt and self-loathing.
