Northern Iran. A young boy, equipped with his motorbike, travels through the cities, the mountains and the Caspian Sea on the search for a mythical stone supposed to bring happiness. Through his journey, he will cross the paths of those who, before him, have tried to find it as well. Through an intergenerational portrait of contemporary Iran, La Vallée Heureuse seeks to question the mythical and universal quest for happiness.
