The film tells a story of a policeman named Robert Hansen (Jakob Cedergren) who lives in Copenhagen. After suffering a nervous breakdown, he is reassigned to a quiet, rural area.
Once there, Robert's big city lifestyle starts to get in the way of his small town existence. As he begins to interact with the local folk, a surprising death leads him on an unexpected new path.
In addition to winning the hearts of moviegoers around the world, "Terribly Happy" accrued a number of prestigious awards after its release. In fact, it took home six Danish Critics Awards including Best Picture, and was featured in the New York Times as a critic's pick.
