Can a Stone Age woman find the key to happiness?
The Stone Age woman Urga was frozen inside a block of ice with a baby mammoth for over twenty-three thousand years, but thanks to the effects of global warming, they thaw out again. After first clapping eyes on the human race, Urga wants nothing more than to get straight back into the block of ice. However, Urga is a fighter and doesn’t give up that easily – she wants to find out if she can find the key to happiness in this most peculiar world.
She’s accompanied along the way by the developer of the Happiness App, Felix Sommer, his clever daughter, Maya and grumpy Captain Lovskar. Their odyssey leads them from Bhutan to Finland and from India to Italy. However, a team of ruthless scientists is hot on their heels as they want to conduct scientific experiments on the Stone Age woman and the baby mammoth.
