The Happiness of the Katakuris

The Katakuris are an average family whose dream is to own a successful country inn. But soon things begin to go wrong when each of their guests ends up dead by suicide, accident or murder. And once they have made the decision to save their business by burying the bodies and concealing the deaths, they find themselves sucked into a nightmare of lies and fear. None of this is helped by the arrival of the daughter's con-man boyfriend, an escaped murderer with police in hot pursuit, and an erupting volcano. Filled with surreal musical numbers, disturbed animated characters, killer zombies and an array of gruesome deaths, this delirious black comedy has to be seen to be believed!
