Cyrano de Bergerac meets high school, as modern teen Cyrano longs to ask Roxane to prom, but fears she will reject him because of his enormous nose. When he learns of her secret crush on Christian, Cyrano hides his true feelings and helps his tongue-tied rival "prompose" to her. Concealed in the shadows, Cyrano eloquently expresses his love for Roxane through Christian, but will Roxane fall for their deception? And will Cyrano ever overcome his self-consciousness and find true love?
