Happiness TM

★★★★★ “a beautiful and twisted premise” 

Happiness™ is the immersive self-help seminar for anyone who’s ever wanted it all - and is willing to pay for it!

Gather to experience the launch of The Infinity Line™ - HPL™’s answer to universal unhappiness - hosted by two of the company’s most revered spokesmen: James ‘when-life-gives-you-a’ Lemon and Peter ‘more-fun-than-monkeys-in-a’ Barrel. But before long, a glimpse backstage threatens to undermine their shiny exteriors: is this what being happy looks like? Or maybe it’s just about being the least sad person in the room…

Happiness™ looks at our relentless pursuit of just that, and our inability to admit the opposite; taking a beautiful and twisted premise to tear open the dark heart of brainwashing scam-schemes and corporate double speak.
