Synopsis:

2013 Big Brother contestants, Tim Dormer and Ben Zabel, star in The Graceland Happiness Project. The project was born when Tim won Big Brother and promised to take his friend to the home of his childhood idol – Elvis Presley’s Graceland. In 2014 Ben’s struggle with depression was made public after he attempted suicide. Tim follows through on his promise to show Ben that having a stab at making your dreams come true can help fight the demons in your head. What began as a holiday became a rescue mission to help Ben find a new lease on life. The Graceland Happiness Project explores the complexity of not only having depression but also being the friend of someone who suffers from mental illness. With extreme contrast in personalities, their raw chemistry provides genuine moments of friendship – equal amounts of tears and laughs.
