Revel in the light-hearted tale of how the most important battle is the one for the heart. Marie is a fearless orphan raised among the camaraderie of the twenty-first French regiment who has just fallen in love with an outsider. Her unconventional upbringing is challenged when a wealthy woman, claiming to be her aunt, arrives to make Marie a proper lady, complete with a new suitor. What will Marie choose, love or duty?
