It is 1885, during the Serbo-Bulgarian war. Wealthy young Raina Petkoff impatiently awaits the return of her fiancé Sergius Saranoff, hero of the recent Bulgarian victory over the Serbs. But her head is turned by the arrival of Bluntschli, a Swiss mercenary fighting for Serbia, who hides in her bedroom after the battle and unheroically prefers chocolate to bullets. Meanwhile Sergius flirts with Louka, the Petkoff’s bold and ambitious servant girl, much to the disapproval of her fiancé, the faithful servant Nicola.
Will Raina follow her parents’ wishes and settle for Sergius and the status quo or choose her “chocolate cream soldier”?
