Life for Princess Isabella is far from a dream, trapped by tradition, protocol and the stifling burden of inheriting the crown; she longs to escape her shackles. One night, Isabella decides to seek freedom and run away. As she approaches the Palace gates, she meets Sophia, who has fled her abusive home. When they realise just how alike they look, they agree to switch places for one week. What starts out as a naïve plan to follow their dreams soon takes an unexpected turn with events quickly spiralling out of their control. As the nightmare continues around them, they become trapped in a race against time to try and stop the devastating fallout from their actions.
The Pretender is a modern day re-telling of the Mark Twain classic ‘The Prince and the Pauper’ and is an emotionally intense and compelling story of friendship, love and consequence
