So, a guy goes off to war, becomes a genuine war hero. Is held for years by the enemy, during which time his adoring wife, while waiting for his return, gets into a Christmas Eve car accident which leaves her permanently disfigured. He comes home and tries to make it work, but the people have changed.
He wants to live a little after all he’s been through. She’s just happy to be alive after all she’s been through, and glad that he’s alive and home. But they can’t put the pieces back together again, much as they both might have wished they could. He goes off and has a little fun, eventually marrying someone else.
And the woman who waited for him, the one he originally married, says she’s grateful for his generosity, as he has agreed to pay her medical bills for life and, even now, at the age of 70, says she still adores him and will vote for him to be the next President of the United States.
