December 1897, Paris. Edmond Rostand is not yet thirty but already has two children and too much anxiety. He has not written anything for two years. Ignoring the whims of actresses, the demands of his producers, the jealousy of his wife, the stories of his best friend's broken heart and the lack of enthusiasm of all those around him, Edmond must focus and put pen to paper. For now, he only has the title: "Cyrano de Bergerac".
