HUNT FOR JOY depicts the universe of Joy Moore, a slightly delusional woman in her late twenties. In facing sheer chaos, abandonment, and alienation, Joy copes by allowing her imagination to idle into idyllic worlds.
The pilot episode of HUNT FOR JOY premiered on TELUS Optik TV On Demand on March 16, 2015, and was funded by Telus through the Storyhive Filmmaking Grant.
The Pilot Episode visits Joy’s seemingly normal childhood, only to plunge into an abusive present. As she is forced to journey into a new and overwhelming city to break away from the dysfunctional relationship, Joy gets a job in a mailroom. That shred of hope quickly dissipates when she commits mail fraud and looses the job.
Follow Joy on her hunt for normalcy, friendship, belonging, and a coming-to-terms with her own self as she faces the reality of the world around her.
