Viva Hate

Viva Hate

Viva Hate is the story of Daniel, an avid Morrissey admirer, who starts the band Viva Hate to get recognition from the world, but mainly from his mum who only cares for his older brother Tommy. Tommy, a petty thief, is his mothers lovechild as opposed to Daniel who is “just the result of a one-night-stand.” As Daniel becomes a sort of rockstar, gets entangled in his brothers criminal life and finds his true love Fanny, the story explodes in music and action and Daniel finds out what really matters in life.
