PLOT SYNOPSIS


Routine-loving Joy (AMY HUBERMAN) is having a tough time after a messy breakup with her live-in boyfriend, Aidan (LOCHLANN O’MEARAIN). Then a promotion forces her to step out of her comfort zone as she replaces her network’s star vlogger, the Happy Hunter.

The job sends Joy to unusual places where people find bliss: wrestling matches, wellness retreats, hot yoga, and more, all while filming her discomfort. But despite the new gig and help from her free-spirited roommate (AISLING BEA), Joy can’t seem to get over Aidan, or even stop running into him and his beautiful new girlfriend (KAREN HASSAN). Will Joy be able to accept the changes in her life and find happiness of her own?
