NYC post 9-11: not since the early 80s has the underground music scene attracted so much attention. A young rock group finds itself on the verge of making it big with the help of their friends. In the whirlwind of music industry fury, the guys need to choose: go with big time manager and publicist or stick with those loyal friends who got them here. Hated explores the human craving for fame and fortune, the ease with which we are able to use and abuse those closest to us, and the desire to feel that you’re not hated. Based on a true story, hated provides an inside look at the music industry today.
