SUNSHINE is a 4 x 1 hour drama series set in the summer of 2017 in the working class Melbourne suburb of Sunshine. It is in this humble, barren suburb that our South Sudanese protagonist, Jacob Chagai, resides; a star basketballer with dreams of climbing his Biblical namesake’s ladder to heaven: the American National Basketball Association. Running parallel to Jacob’s sporting aspirations and life within Sunshine’s South Sudanese community of Melbourne, is a high stakes criminal investigation. Police are hunting down the perpetrator of a violent assault, which left an underage rich white girl with near-fatal head injuries, in a coma fighting for her life. SUNSHINE is a vibrant, kinetic and compelling hybrid drama that explores a world of contrasts - truth and reconstruction, past and present, hope and heartbreak - felt by those forging a new life in a foreign land.
