Aux États-Unis, dans le Massachusetts des années 1980, Joy est une jeune mère célibataire de deux enfants, qui doit également faire tourner une maison dans laquelle son ex-mari, chanteur de cabaret, vit au sous-sol et sa mère passe la journée devant des soap operas. Son père Rudy, responsable d'un garage de camions, débarque un beau jour, rejeté par sa compagne et doit cohabiter avec son ex-gendre qu'il n'apprécie guère. Il part à la recherche d'une nouvelle conquête, et rencontre rapidement Trudy, veuve fortunée. À l'occasion d'une sortie sur le voilier de Trudy, Joy doit nettoyer les verres de vin brisés sur le pont en teck. Cela lui donne l'idée d'un balai-serpillère auto-essorant. Dans le garage de son père et avec l'aide financière de Trudy, elle monte un atelier d'assemblage, à partir de pièces qu'elle trouve à faire fabriquer en Californie. Une relation de son ex-mari lui permet de rencontrer Neil Walker, directeur d'une toute nouvelle activité télévisuelle de vente de produits. Joy convainc Neil et obtient la présentation de son balai par le présentateur vedette de la chaîne de télé-achat. Mais l'essai en direct est un fiasco total. Joy revient à la charge et arrache de pouvoir présenter elle-même son produit : le succès est alors au rendez-vous.

The gang of Ulysses Pick (Jason Patric) shoots its way into his former home, which the police have surrounded, with a hostage and a stuffed wolverine (named "Crispy") in tow. Big Ed, the gang's second-in-command, then evicts the dead gangsters (who seem otherwise alive), after asking them to identify themselves: "Those of you who have been killed, stand facing the wall." They leave reluctantly, and the gang waits for Ulysses. The film's narrator, the ghost of Ulysses's father-in-law Calypso/Camille (Louis Negin), reveals that the house is haunted (and not only by him) because although a house's happiness is able to vacate the premises after its inhabitants have left, its sorrow is doomed to remain inside forever. This house had once belonged to Ulysses and his four children with his wife Hyacinth (Isabella Rossellini).

En 200 000 ans d'existence, l'homme a rompu l'équilibre sur lequel la Terre vivait depuis 4 milliards d'années. Réchauffement climatique, épuisement des ressources, extinction des espèces : l'homme a mis en péril sa propre demeure. Mais il est trop tard pour être pessimiste : il reste à peine dix ans à l'humanité pour inverser la tendance, prendre conscience de son exploitation démesurée des richesses de la Terre, et changer son mode de consommation.
