After a strong international festival run, ToyBox Films is delighted to announce the worldwide digital release of the Film London short film TERMINALLY HAPPY, written/directed by ADINA ISTRATE and starring ALASTAIR MACKENZIE (Black Mirror), EMMA CAMPBELL-JONES (Doctor Who) and WILLIAM STAGG (Macbeth).
Through pharmaceutical experimentation, Dr. Louis W has developed an opiate that can put an end to the rising suicide rates plaguing a desolate yet fast-approaching future. TERMINALLY HAPPY begins in the middle of Louis’s final experimentation – on himself.
"[...] a beautifully shot short film loaded with melancholy and futurism, teasing us towards a wider narrative, unnerving and mysterious - we can't wait to see what Adina Istrate going to do with this... We're thinking Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror..."
- ROSS HENBEST, SWHYPE

“Terminally Happy has the viewer on edge long before the sci-fi twist. Those eager to see more of Istrate’s deft hand at sci-fi should look forward to her upcoming debut feature EVE, a psychological thriller about the first manned mission to Mars.” – Short of the Week on One Room With A View
