Marcos, Sandra and their daughter Lola are a charismatic and loving family. As a fireman, Marcos is used to living life on the edge, but after a tragic event takes place, his life takes an unexpected and unwelcome turn. Suddenly, the once caring, altruistic fireman finds himself unable to recognise or empathize with the feelings of others.

With the help of those around him, Marcos will start treatment to overcome the shock. His daughter Lola will play a key role in helping him rebuild his world and learn to feel again.

HAPPY SAD is a story about overcoming the obstacles life throws at us, but it's also a story of love, LOVE with capital letters; love for your partner, love for your children, love for your friends... A movie about emotions, the fear of feeling and LIFE.
