Raina is young, beautiful, and madly in love with Sergius, a dashing young officer. Sergius is the hero of the hour, leading a daring cavalry charge against impossible odds. Bluntshchli is a battle-hardened professional soldier on the losing side. On the run and desperate, he appears in Raina's bedroom. He has no weapon: experience has taught him chocolates are more useful than bullets. Will she turn him in, and guarantee his certain death? Or will she collude with the hated enemy, and find there is a great deal more to love and war than she first thought...

Performers Olivia Darnley (Raina), Guy Lankester (Bluntschli), Col Farrell (Petkoff), Helen Cartwright (Katherine Petkoff), Damian Kell (Sergius), Lisa Diveney (Louka), Robin Cameron (Nicola), Mark Godfrey (Officer).
