The Legend: Third Century Rome
Believing single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, Emperor Claudius II outlaws marriage for his soldiers. A priest by the name of Valentine defies Claudius, performing marriages in secret for young lovers. For his bravery and his belief in love, Valentine, the priest, is put to death... but the legend of St. Valentine lives on.
Imagine: North Dakota, 1918
St. Valentine. Dead since the 3rd century, he's never experienced the love he's made possible for so many young couples. God takes pity on Valentine and sends him to earth, and a woman who needs him, a woman he has to rescue before her grief and despair lead her to ending her own life.
No longer a saint, or a legend, he's just a man. Can the man do what the legend could not?
My Valentine. A picture only Kate Douglas could paint.
