is a dark comedy set in Stockholm that offers a fresh take on depression and mood disorders. From an attic apartment in Stockholm, Torsten wages battle not only with his brother and his sister-in-law - but with his own mercurial mind. Happy Yet? is the story of a family struggling to understand Torsten and his disordered mind. Torsten's confidence and charisma fool everyone but his young niece Nina, who is wise to her Uncle's financial and romantic scheming. As a permanent guest in his brother's home, Torsten is constantly reminded of his inadequacy and inability to fit into 'normal' society. Through Torsten's intelligence, quick wit and unnerving charm, Happy Yet?
addresses the complexities and humiliations of mental illness.
