The Happiness Business

Radu moves out of his NYC apartment he shares with Jeni, to find an environment more conducive to his creativity. He goes to South Carolina where he helps his uncle, Eugene, set up a travel agency in Myrtle Beach. Conversations with Eugene and a client, Leonora, reveal that home is not necessarily where the heart is, and that much of life is about getting back to business. Setting: New York City and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, USA.
