“Happiness”

Ryan (Elijah Wood, Lord of the Rings), a young man in his 30s, has just printed his suicide note, ingested smoothie full of prescription medications and is waiting for the inevitable to happen… only it doesn’t. After revising his suicide note for the fourth time and watching the sunrise he realizes that he’s going to have to consider other options. When his attractive new neighbour Jenna (Fiona Gubelmann, Blades of Glory) asks him to watch her dog Wilfred (Jason Gann, The Wedge), Ryan is completely dumfounded by her canine pet. Everyone else sees Wilfred as just a dog, but Ryan sees a crude and somewhat surly, yet irrepressibly brave and honest Australian bloke in a cheap dog suit. While leading him through a series of comedic and existential adventures, Wilfred the dog shows Ryan the man how to overcome his fears and joyfully embrace the unpredictability and insanity of the world around him.
