Agent of HappinessArun Bhattarai, Dorottya Zurbó

Amber, an official Bhutanese Happiness Agent, travels the Himalayas surveying people's happiness. On his remote mountain journey, he measures people's happiness and struggles to find his own fulfillment.

In Buthan, everything is about happiness. Happiness is even a top priority of the Buthanese government as they issue a yearly hapiness survey to all residents of the country. Amber is one of the many Happiness Agents in Buthan. Along with his colleague, Gunaraj, he goes door to door with a questionnaire to measure the happiness of Buthanese people. During his mission in the inhospitable Himalayan mountains, he meets people of all origins, all chasing different dreams. Amber himself also has dreams and desires. Inspired by the happiness of others, he goes on the lookout for his own.
