    • Synopsis
    • Based on the acclaimed bestseller by Dutch author Annejet van der Zijl, SONNY BOY is the exceptional - based on true facts - love story between two apparently ordinary people: typical Dutch Rika, mother of 4 children and a 17 years younger colored young man from Surinam. Their love survives all presumptions and obstructions of the sometimes cruel outside world, but finally is unable to cope with the brutal and devastating power of the WWII.
