Happiness Theory


Worlds collide on a stormy night when assisted living nurse Camilla, heartbroken after discovering her husband’s infidelity, crosses paths with the alien Buoy, who’s come to Earth to study human art.


The same day Hurricane Io is set to make landfall in Bluewater Ridge, Camilla Miller’s marriage falls apart. Unable to go home, she checks into a hotel for the night. There, she meets a strange artist named “Buoy”, who asks her to be his muse. She soon learns that he’s an alien researcher who’s come to Earth to learn about human art, and his arrival brings consequences that neither of them can weather alone. With all of the heartwarming romance of My Love from the Star along with sci-fi inspirations from Mass Effect, Happiness Theory is a unique and deeply moving exploration of what it means to love and be human.
