Happiness: A Hopeful Journey to a Euphoric Disaster

The focus on happiness is big and sometimes seems to be obsessive. Everything is supposed to be fun, we should be the best version of ourselves and there is little space for failure. How do you handle failure? Does the digital hunt for love create happiness? And what are the alternative ways towards happiness? We are trying to find an answer with funny, moving and striking shorts.
