1809, France. Dashing Captain Neuville proposes to aristocrat Pauline, just as war breaks out, forcing him to depart for the front. Pauline's health fades while pining for him, so her sister Elisabeth secretly pens forged letters from the Captain. The letters depict the Captain as a true war hero rather than the coward he really is. Suddenly, he unexpectedly reappears in their lives.
