I will recommend this story to everyone.  The story is short and sweet about a man finding his calling in life.  What I liked best about about it was that it reminds us that the previous generations had lives before us.  Those stories can either teach us or just entertain us.  As stated before it is a short little movie and makes me happy every time I watch it .  So the title "Happiness is here" is very apropos for me.  Matsuda Shota is adorable as usual.
 I hope you enjoy it as much as i did : )
