McHappiness. One moment of joy between two buns. All wrapped up in an environmentally unfriendly package, and sold to a million people all over the world. And then you eat it, and it's gone and you spend the rest of your life looking for some more. Two strangers in a car together, connected only by a mutual friend, discuss life and the passages of time. Both are on the brink of change - the girl's family is moving to Queensland, the boy is leaving for university. By sharing a perfect moment together, they realise that time is a state of mind , and just when 'McHappiness' comes your way, you are forced to move on and pursue it once more.
