Happiness. If you turn on the news today you don't see much of it. In the wake of natural disasters, terrorist attacks and government let-downs, Americans are striving for a light at the end of the tunnel; a glimmer of hope that will bring solace and peace back into their lives.

This "docu-drama" brings us along on a journey in the search of absolute contentment. This film allows our audience to meet the internationally revered "Luminaries" ... Written by MJ Lasky
