This is a good film. We saw it on Stanford campus & it was followed by a lively discussion & Q&A. It's a good look at what happiness means to others, how they achieve & maintain it & what it means for us in the US & us as individuals.

It doesn't depend on anything...

Like almost everything in life, happiness is simply luck.

The exception is in people who give of themselves to others without any motive.
