A father and a daughter- both striking reflections of each other, are at vastly different phases of their lives. The 29-year-old daughter, at the threshold of her career, believes that happiness is a thing of the future. The 64-year-old father, on the verge of retirement believes that happiness is a thing of the past. The film explores the journey of how they both come to realize the importance of being happy in the now.
