Our hero is a poet and a soldier. He falls in love with a woman, Roxanne. However, he doesn't hold out any hope, because he is ashamed of his big nose. A fellow soldier, Christian, also falls in love with the same woman. Christian is very handsome, but he needs our hero's help to conquer this woman, because he isn't very bright, and doesn't know how to express his feelings. Our hero writes love letters for Roxanne, signed with Christian's name. Roxanne marries Christian, but the man she is really in love with is the one who can express his feelings in the beautiful letters.
