Happyland is a gigantic town that looks like a big, crazy theme park. Everything there is meant to entertain its inhabitants. Citizens travel in bumper cars or roller coasters, newsreaders are puppets, and even people’s jobs are games.
In Happyland, people never talk about problems, diseases or death. There’s never a sad or upsetting conversation. The consequence is that, in Happyland, people aren’t allowed to complain…they have become prisoners of this utopia.
Alice tries to live among this general hypocrisy until the day one of her brothers mysteriously disappears. Now she has to go ‘through the looking glass’ and see what lies beneath all the happy masks and fake smiles…
