The series opens with Suzie and her mother-in-law, Noriko (Judy Ongg) struggling with a recent tragedy in the family. Suzie’s husband and son go missing after a crash.

While the authorities are able to recover the belongings of several other passengers who died in the crash, Suzie struggles to find closure.

Masa’s phone continues to ring unlike the mobile phones of the other missing passengers which go to voicemail. None of Masa’s (Hidetoshi Nishijima) and Zen’s belongings were recovered, leaving Suzie and Noriko hopeful that they might still be alive, until a twist in Episode 2.

In “Sunny” Episode 2, Sunny brings Masa’s shoes to Suzie and shares that someone from the airline came and delivered them.

However, it turns out that a suspicious man sent his robot to pose as airline staff to deliver the shoes.

We can guess that Masa and Zen are not dead, but an unidentified man wants Suzie to believe otherwise.

Masa’s disappearance probably has nothing to do with the crash but is connected to his work as a roboticist at Imatech, a fact Suzie was unaware of during their marriage until he went missing.

His disappearance could be related to the suspicious activities of Imatech or the man who tracked Suzie for reasons yet to be revealed.

Two episodes of ‘Sunny’ are currently available to stream on Apple TV+
