These days it’s not enough to be rich and successful. Now we’re expected to be happy, too! One look in the ever-expanding self-help section of any bookstore reveals a whole industry surrounding our spirit of satisfaction. In America, they’ve even created a new academic discipline: positive psychology. Our frowning filmmaker dares to take a cynical look at the science of happiness. From neurobiologists who measure his brainwaves to economists and their mathematical equations, he subjects himself to every scientific method of evaluation.
