Get Real

Synopsis

Get Real is the story of Steven Carter, an ordinary teenager from Basingstoke, Middle England, and his friends. Like most teenagers, they're desperate to fall in love: Steven's neighbour Linda with her driving instructor, his school friend Mark with Wendy, Wendy with Head Boy and all round dreamboat John, John's mate Kevin with Wendy's friend Jessica. But like most teenagers, they are pretty hopeless at it. Steven is in love too, but he knows it is impossible. It's just a dream. It'll never be real. Except it is. But there's a catch: Steven's lover won't acknowledge him in public.


Get Real is the comic tale of what happens when the dream becomes an unexpected reality, and forces Steven to choose between being himself and being in love.
