    • Synopsis
    • Sonny Boy is the true story of a remarkable love between two ordinary people: Rika, a typical Dutch mother of four, and Waldemar, a Surniamese man 17 years her junior. Their love is strong enough to withstand nearly all the prejudices and opposition it meets, until it comes up against the devastating power of the Second World War. Produced by Shooting Star in co-production with Ester Reglin Film and Menuet, the film has already sold more than 400,000 tickets in the Netherlands.
