The Happy People

What are you smiling about?

Written and directed by David Vienna, the short film The Happy People tells the story of Stan, a lazy office worker whose world crumbles around him as he loses his job, his best friend, his girlfriend, his health and, ultimately, his sanity all in the course of 24 hours. For him, there’s one thing to blame — the Happy People. Unwilling and unable to join in the fun around him, Stan’s efforts to confront the Happy People end in disaster, each greater than the one before. The short debuted at the San Luis Obispo International Film Festival.
