Tess loves sci-fi films. In fact, she wishes her life was rather more like one – the excitement and the danger with all the boring bits cut out. So she’s going to do her best to tell you her story like that, and just hope that life doesn’t get in the way.
On paper the two of them are perfect for each other: both wanted to be astronauts as kids, neither can stand rom-coms and they’d happily stay in together for 6 days straight binge eating take-out and watching Battlestar Galactica. But sometimes, however much the universe is drawing you towards a person, you must find your own orbit. In this quick-paced dark comedy we follow the lifespan of a relationship, alongside the lifespan of a star, and figure out how you keep living when everything goes supernova.
