An Archive of Happiness is set in the Scottish Highlands over the course of one day during the Avens family’s annual get-together.
It’s the summer solstice and theirs is a fractured family, broken by arguments, by things said and not said, by a mother who has left and a father who was left behind. What happens on this day will force them to cleave together to survive and redraw the traditional bonds of family.
