From a woman faced with a long waited miracle in “Baby Blue Joy” to a man who finds himself with humanity’s most terrifying manifestation, an enraged mob, in “What is Mine is Yours.”
Yakusak stretches the limits of the normal the perception of decisions people take in situations beyond their control. The Curse of Happiness weaves exciting stories of how normalcy is a luxury in reality; one we often take for granted.
