Duration 2 hours
As a young lady awaits the return of her heroic fiancÃ© from war, a disheveled soldier sneaks into her bedroom fleeing the fight. Finding his simplicity more alluring than her fiancÃ©â€™s arrogant posturing, sheâ€™s faced with singling out the real man for her. Will it be the â€œaccidental heroâ€ who is more toy than soldier? Or the pragmatic â€œcowardâ€ who comes armed with chocolates instead of bullets? Crackling with wit, irony and charm, Shawâ€™s romantic comedy pokes fun at the dangers of bravado in battle and idealistic notions of love.
