Cheerful to its very core, “Happiness, Laughter & Joy” shows Uncle Tadashi & Da Boyz tapping into a sense of optimism that comes only after such a long journey. The sense of purpose that home can bring is one that cannot be replicated easily. By growing up one gains perspective on what truly made their home great, the things that they took for granted, the things they missed, and ultimately what might bring them back.
