Brief synopsis in English:

‘The Real Me’ is a coming of age story.  Penny is Greek and Shaz comes from a very traditional Turkish family.  Despite the division of their cultures, due to the war in Cyprus between the Greek and Turkish people, the girl’s are best friends. 

Penny is desperately in love with Shaz. Penny fights every day to hide the “real Penny” from Shaz.  Penny is terrified that if she were to reveal her true self that she would lose her best friend and the only person she has ever really loved.

At a party both girls share an intense first kiss.  However, every action has a consequence. Will Shaz feel the same way? Can they overcome their strict cultural differences?  Or will the real Penny be left broken hearted?
