Capt. Louis Renault: What on earth brought you to Casablanca?
Rick Blaine: My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.
World War II, Morocco - a viper's nest of corrupt French police, spies, fleeing emigres, gamblers and drinkers. It's the perfect place for weary American expatriate nightclub owner Rick Blaine to hide out. Rick's Cafe is the gathering place for the good, the bad and the ugly, but he doesn't care, as long as they spend their money.
One day, of all the bars in all the world, Rick's long-lost love, Ilsa walks in with her resistance leader husband, Victor, and Rick is pulled into both a love triangle and a web of political intrigue. Ilsa and Victor need to escape from Casablanca, and Rick may be the only one who can help them.
Casablanca is the greatest love story ever told and time may have gone by but it has not diminished it.
