With all odds against her, in order for Penelope to break the family curse, she must find true love with "one of her own kind" and realize the most important life lesson, self love.

Penelope Wilhern, born to wealthy socialites, is afflicted by the Wilhern spell that can only be broken when she finds love.

Hidden away in her family's estate, the lonely girl meets a string of suitors in her parent's futile attempt to break the curse.

Each eligible bachelor is enamoured with Penelope and her sizable dowry; until her curse is revealed—her huge nose.
