Is there a mathematical formula for achieving happiness? "The Happiest Person In America" explores this possibility, and one woman's quest to learn from the one man who has perhaps mathematically "achieved" it. Set at the cultural intersection of American Judaism and the Asian American experience, the film tells an unexpectedly funny and subtly insightful story about what we lose and what we gain throughout our lives, and how those transactions affect our identities and our happiness-- even while we must acknowledge that there are some aspects to each of us that are immutable.
