Finding happiness is sometimes hard -- even for angels. Raquel doesn't like the winter holidays. Everyone seems to get better presents than she does. And everyone seems happier than she is. Then one day she receives a mysterious note, telling her that in order to be happy, she must trade something with a perfectly happy person. But where will she find a perfectly happy person? The Little Angel of Happiness wants to help Raquel, but nothing he does seems to work out the way he wants it to. Will the little angel be able to help Raquel find happiness, or will they both be unhappy for the holidays? Look for a little happiness in every day.
