On honing pride in everything that he has around him all his life, he now asks himself whether they mean anything at all! Frank Augustine,a man who has earned himself a big house, expensive cars, a wife and a son; who is the epitome of a "perfect and happy family man" by society standards, finds himself at his shrink's office, where he realizes that he has not been happy after all. A strange series of questions raised by the Therapist digs deep into Frank's Psyche who embarks a even mysterious journey, where he meets his alter-ego trapped inside his Reflection. He walks in the mystic hallways of the 'Happiness store', which is not outside, but in his mind to strip off his four superficial, self-made pretentious layers, or veils- "the herd", "square peg in a round hole", "Trophy Wall" and "lonely together"; to maybe get happiness in exchange. After the journey, whether he can go back to his not-so-content family, and free himself of being the hostage of his own- from his own clutches, is the debate. Written by Akshara Bharadwaj See less
