Supernova Hangover

Supernova Hangover is a fast, funny story of nineties’ hedonism. A time when you could eat yourself sick on ambition – if you were up for adventure and had the bottle to see it through.

Ambition and desire drive Toots Silver, who is told a secret that opens her eyes to the shadowy forces at work behind the celebrity dream - and the part she plays in it as a hungry journalist. The story takes her to New York to unearth the final piece of the jigsaw of what could be the greatest showbiz story of all time. A story that will rock the world of celebrity to its core, from the present, back to the parallel universe of the golden age of rock n’ roll in the Sixties when it began.

But as her investigation unfolds, a dramatic turn of events overtakes her. Toots is shaken into a new consciousness. One that makes her question the warped desires of her generation. One that will change her life forever. Can anyone save her from herself?
