Set in an island paradise during World War II with a famous score by Rodgers and Hammerstein this classic musical tells two parallel love stories that are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war.  Nellie, a spunky nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with a mature French planter, Emile.  Nellie learns that the mother of his children was an island native and, unable to turn her back on the prejudices with which she was raised, refuses Emile's proposal of marriage.  Meanwhile, the strapping Lt. Joe Cable denies himself a future with a Tonkinese girl with whom he's fallen in love out of the same fears that haunt Nellie.
