Synopsis

An American expat in Dubai explores people's ideas of happiness while an amateur British golfer attempts to conquer the course.

Experts and expats from across the globe including a priest, monk, veterinarian, educators and everyday folks guide us on the complex journey to contentment. At the same time, we follow Eugene, struggling to lower his score on the golf course — a quest that often mirrors the emotional rollercoaster of life. (Film Release Date: Early 2022)

Doug Morrione (director), inspired by his relocation to the UAE — the first country to appoint a federal minister of happiness — interviewed expats from around the world on what it takes to lead a more content, meaningful and satisfying life. The story reaches out from Dubai to Nepal, England, Austria, Ireland, Ukraine, The United States, Bangladesh and other destinations to see how life in people's home countries juxtaposes over their lives in Dubai.
