Synposis

Happy as one? Or together alone? This contemporary drama follows the paths of several protagonists, each looking to escape their loneliness. Even though their encounters are only ephemeral, often comical, sometimes tragic, they leave traces in the episodes of the others.

Happy As One is not based on a screenplay but has been created in extensive rehearsals and improvisations before and throughout the shoot, thus forging stories about our maddening quest for love and happiness.
