Happiness, a Five Year-Plan

A Chinese Commission on the Future arrives in Mariannelund, a small village in the countryside of Sweden. They are well informed; Sweden is ranked number 7, China is ranked number 112.

It’s about happiness, but can happiness really be measured?

The film can be seen as a contemporary satire and a poetical articulation about a
situation that can be experienced in the Swedish countryside as well as in a Chinese metropolis.
