Happy Place -- Film Description:
"Happy Place explores the time that seven women spend together in an in-patient care facility: all so different, but with one thing in common—they have all attempted suicide. Samira's (Backo) attempt stems from PTSD after a violent sexual assault several years earlier, and her fellow residents have personal stories that intersect with her own—sophisticated Celine (Perron), ribald Mildred (Walsh), haughty Rosemary (Sinha), good natured Nina (Repo-Martell, reprising the role she originated on stage), and competitive Joyce (McCarthy). Trying to lead them all to healing is psychiatrist Louise (Rosling), holding the centre of this diverse and kinetic group. Some women will leave the safety of the clinic, for better or for worse, and others will stay, hopefully to heal and not to break."
