The stories of six people moving away from a philosophy of “more is better” toward a more holistic conception of well-being — one based on a close connection to themselves, their families, the natural world, and to the greater good. For the longest time, we’ve been living as though the more we have - the more money, the more goods, the more territory—the happier we’ll be. Surprisingly, over the last fifty years as our standard of living has improved, our happiness has not. It examines how our ideal of the American Dream has come to the end of its promise. The film tells the stories of people moving away from a philosophy of “more is better” and toward a more holistic conception of happiness — one based on a close connection to their bodies and health, to the natural world, and to the greater good.
