Robert Hanson (Jakob Cedergren) is a Copenhagen police officer who, following a nervous breakdown, is transferred to a small provincial town to take on the mysteriously vacated Marshall position and subsequently gets mixed up with a married femme fatale. Robert’s big city temperament makes it impossible for him to fit in, or understand the uncivilized, bizarre behavior displayed by the townspeople. Quickly spiraling downward into an intense fable blending cutting edge dark humor with classic noir elements, "Terribly Happy" displays a unique, often macabre vision of the darkest depths to which people will go to achieve a sense of security and belonging.
