"Happy On My Own"



Directed by Mark Datuin

Written by Mark Datuin

Produced by Mark Datuin & Tony Babcock



Six Degrees Without Separation is an ensemble domestic drama about the intertwining stories of six seemingly unrelated characters who, because of “happy accidents”, are linked together more closely than they think. Four years ago, Marshall recorded a video detailing his misery and guilt that was triggered by personal tragedy. The video was discarded, never to resurface, but has now anonymously arrived at the hands of his estranged father. Jocie, a humble wife and devoted sister, has been focused on intervening in her step-son’s life and coping with her sister’s illness. By paying it forward and helping others with their struggles, her own sanity and marriage are placed in jeopardy.​  Monika, a quirky newcomer in town, has hastily fostered both personal and professional relationships with the hopes of furthering her acting career. Completely aloof to the malaise of the people she comes across, her actions put into motion a series of revelations that will forever change their lives.
