Joy is the story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and, in the process, recovers her childhood magic and finds her place in the world. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise. In this world of unforgiving commerce, allies become adversaries, adversaries becomes allies, an estranged husband becomes a friend, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces.
