Happy Place explores the time a group of women spend together in an in-patient care facility. The women have only 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 – sophisticated Celine (Perron), ribald Mildred (Walsh), guarded Rosemary (Sinha), vulnerable Nina (Repo-Martell), and competitive Joyce (McCarthy) – have personal stories that intersect with her own. Trying to lead them all to some form of healing is psychiatrist Louise (Rosling), who holds the centre of this diverse and kinetic group. Some of the women will leave the safety of the clinic, for better or worse, and others will stay, hopefully learning to fnd a way to exist alongside their pain.
Happy Place is a film about community, survival and most of all love.

In the early 20th century, the public becomes aware of people with superhuman abilities, known as Powers, resulting in the government passing a law requiring all Powers to register their abilities. They quickly become a key component of the economy, notably in constructing Lincoln City as the “City of Tomorrow.” As the Second Industrial Revolution begins, Powers are marginalized in the face of increasing mechanization, leading to severe prejudice as they become second-class citizens. By the 1990s, a crime syndicate known as The Trust has flooded the streets with an addictive drug called Psyke, made from the spinal fluid of desperate or trafficked Powers. Police departments begin using advanced drones, named Guardians, and facial recognition software to combat Power-related crime while a city-wide Powers ban is debated.
