Two star-crossed young lovers are torn apart by war. Love and innocence are put to the test, but in love, one never knows how it will end. This bittersweet romance, based on the acclaimed 1964 French film starring Catherine Deneuve, has an enchanting and haunting jazz score by Michel Legrand, featuring the hit song “(If It Takes Forever) I Will Wait for You.”
