A 9-year-old monk has never before left his Bhutanese village perched high in the Himalayas, where the nearest road is a three-day walk. When connected to electricity for the first time, he treks to the nearest city in search of a television. The Independent Lens documentary Happiness tells a story of the bittersweet seduction of technology and progress.
