The romance: Savannah and John, a soldier, fall in love while he's home on leave. The only issue? He has to return to the army. He's loyal to his duty and she does her best to be loyal to her love, but an up-and-down emotional roller coaster ensues.
The lesson: Love requires patience — and sometimes, it requires a lot of patience. Long-distance relationships are tough and compromise is necessary in every relationship, but it's important to recognize your needs and speak up when you're struggling with your feelings.
