Oh Happy Day (2006)

Film details


Jonathan is an ambitious young black man working in a cool London advertising agency. At an awards party he meets smooth American David who, after dropping off Jonathan's drunken female colleague who lives in the same building, nips in for a timely nightcap. The sex is great, but soon after, back at the office, Jonathan meets his new clients - a pharmaceutical company producing a wonder drug that works like Ecstasy (but everyday!) and David is part of the team. Not out to his colleague (and working for a boss who sacks people for sleeping with 'the client'), Jonathan soon starts to realise that being happy can be a little trickier than popping a pill.
