Happy Earth Co

Happy Earth Co. is a story about entrapment in a so-called “free world.” Based in the not-so-distant-future; 2050 to be precise. A man named John, lives in the heart of a smog filled, polluted megacity of depressed citizens. John works in the drab, dull Sales department of Happy Earth Co. The Company releases their new product, the “Ecstatic 1000,” a device that guarantees happiness to anyone who uses it. It’s an instant success. However, little known to John, his co-workers and the rest of the deranged city, Happy Earth Co’s real intentions aren’t as sincere as everyone thinks
