MISSION: JOY – FINDING HAPPINESS IN TROUBLED TIMES grants audiences unprecedented access to the unlikely friendship of two international icons who transcend religion: His Holiness the Dalai Lama & Archbishop Desmond Tutu. In their final mission together, these self-described mischievous brothers deliver a master class on how to create happiness in the world and offer wisdom to help each of us live with more joy, despite circumstances.

Consisting largely of never-before-seen footage shot over 5 days at the Dalai Lama’s residence in Dharamsala, MISSION: JOY invites us to join these spiritual leaders as they recount stories from their lives, each having lived through periods of incredible difficulty and strife. With genuine affection, mutual respect and a healthy dose of teasing, these unlikely friends impart lessons gleaned from lived experience, ancient traditions, and the latest cutting-edge science regarding how to live with joy in the face of all of life’s challenges from the extraordinary to the mundane.

In a world that seems to be spiraling out of control, MISSION: JOY serves up a delight-filled antidote that will stay with you long after the credits roll.
