Brief synopsis

There is no universal answer to the question what exactly happiness means. It is one of the oldest philosophical mysteries of humankind - and each individual has to find his / her own answer to it. Diego Pascal Panarello is going on a humoristic and poetic road trip tracing back the origins of a small, unimpressive musical instrument that seems to be the key to personal happiness for countless people around the world.
