Happy Now

Happy Now is a bittersweet story about wanting to be seen as an individual. A typical American family goes to the beach. Their seemingly perfect life is turned upside-down when the mother Carol, who has long felt overlooked in her marriage, kisses a lifeguard and is caught by her husband.
