Supernova is a fast-paced pop-culture romp through the space and time of one relationship featuring the greatest back catalogue of Sci-Fi movies ever made.
Harry and Tess are perfect for each other: they both wanted to be astronauts as kids, neither can stand rom-coms and they both squirm at the word ‘moist’. But sometimes, however much the universe is drawing you towards a person, sometimes you need to find your own orbit.
