Over 2 years in the making, THE SUNNYBOY follows Jeremy Oxley, the enigmatic front man of the much-lauded 80’s band the Sunnyboys as he emerges from a 30-year battle with schizophrenia. Only recently stabilised with medication and secure in a loving environment, the documentary follows Jeremy as he begins to unpick the confused thoughts and feelings he has about his painful past. Unsure of what is real and what is misconstrued, Jeremy tentatively revisits relationships damaged by his illness, most significantly with his brother and fellow band member Peter. With the support of his partner Mary, Jeremy also struggles with the physical ravages of his illness and years of a destructive lifestyle as well as the many relationship challenges they face as they prepare for marriage. Told largely from his own perspective, THE SUNNYBOY follows Jeremy as his confidence and wellbeing slowly grows and he dares to contemplate a return to the stage.
