A remarkable and insightful documentary, made by Italian film maker Massimiliano Zeuli who has his own production company, Overlook, in Rome, it transports an audience into the very heart of our founder, Sue, and the home and family that she has created.It is also a story of love, the special love shared by Sue and her husband Dave - the unsung hero who is her rock in every storm.
For 45 minutes our guests saw a day at the Happy House unfold, with our Evans as their guide.
Charlotte Rossall, 12, was there with her mum Joanne.
Joanne's class at school sponsors Linus and she and Charlotte have helped out with lots of fundraising. But the film had a huge effect on Charlotte.
Joanne wrote on Facebook: "One little lady has had her eyes and heart opened tonight by Sue and David from Happy House.

She made special mention of Massimiliano for giving his time, talent and energy to making the film for us as a labour of true love.
Sue paid tribute to everyone whose support makes our work at the Happy House possible and thanked Dr Falalu Danwata, her oncologist when she was being treated for breast cancer, for giving his name to our scholarship scheme and for being a role model for our children.
