The tale of Penelope did not start well,

Her beauty transformed by an evil spell.

To the world outside the news was big –

A poor little girl, with the nose of a pig!

How to break the curse? Well, nobody knows…

Unless a handsome prince can be made to propose.


In this wonderful modern-day fairy-tale, Penelope is a beautiful young girl with an extraordinary curse. Hidden away from the world in her family’s majestic home, Penelope dreams of breaking free of the enchantment – but true love is hard to find when young men run away screaming.


That is, until she meets Max, a down-on-his luck musician and Annie, a free-spirited rock-chick, who encourage her to come out of hiding and find her true self. Penelope soon discovers that sometimes what you’re looking for can be right under your nose…
