Synopsis:

Joy Levine lives in an old apartment that stands in total contrast to her: shabby and worn-out on the outside while well-kept and filled with joy on the inside.

 

Her life changes when she signs up as a candidate for a TV show named "Gotta Be Happy". To her astonishment, she is chosen to throw a surprise party for her parents on the upcoming show. However, there is a price to pay for all this: she has to let the viewers into her private inner world and share with them an event that has been overshadowing her family's life and hers for the past 22 years; an event that made a tight-knit bunch of friends to shun her parents, Chaya and Yitzhak Levine.

 

The show is to be aired right after Yom Kippur, with forgiveness being its theme. Joy is required to get all her parents' friends to the party in order to conduct the reconciliation. However, reality keeps obstructing her efforts. The idyll expected from such a show is jeopardized by a string of events threatening to shatter the already cracked family cell. But Joy takes the lead, and for once in a long time someone is leading the Levines to a better place
