"Letters of happiness" - these are three amazing stories about love and friendship, about faith in a dream and the connection of generations, about how not to betray yourself and remain human in any life situation. In our age of technology, people are used to rushing, running, making money, while forgetting about the most important thing - about themselves and their true desires. It seems to us that we will be happier as soon as we have a new car or a high salary - And everything is much simpler - the secret of happiness is hidden in the soul of every person: in the ability to believe in miracles, make friends, love, be courageous, follow your dream. This film is like a family album, which allows you to plunge into the past, return to childhood, think about the soul.

Director’s statement

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” These beautiful words of A. Einstein characterize my film "Happiness in an envelope" as accurately as possible.

In this rapid world, we sometimes lack time for the most important thing... We run, without noticing how our children grow up, our parents grow old and our loved ones go away, sometimes forever... And "Happiness in an Envelope" is an attempt to stop the viewer in an instant "here and now" moment, and remind them of such important things as kindness, friendship, love, and belief in the reality of miracles; to move them for a moment into their carefree childhood with smelling Mom's pancakes and old-school Christmas lights on the most miraculous Christmas tree in the world...
These are three parables, three stories about ordinary people who live next to us, and therefore will be familiar to every person, regardless of age.
