Set in Melbourne's outer-west suburb of Sunshine, the story follows Jacob Garang played by new on-screen talent Wally Elnour. Jacob is a young, aspiring South Sudanese-Australian basketball player whose dreams of climbing his Biblical namesake's ladder to heaven - the American National Basketball Association – hang in the balance when he's drawn into a criminal investigation. Police are hunting down the perpetrator of a violent assault, which has left a young teenage girl in a coma fighting for her life, and a group of young men fighting for their innocence.

Sunshine - KC and the Sunshine Band - Netflix

KC and the Sunshine Band are an American disco and funk band, founded in 1973 in Hialeah, Florida. Their best-known songs include the hits “That's the Way (I Like It)”, “(Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty”, “I'm Your Boogie Man”, “Keep It Comin' Love”, “Get Down Tonight”, “Boogie Shoes”, “Please Don't Go” and “Give It Up”. The band took its name from lead vocalist Harry Wayne Casey's last name (“KC”) and the “Sunshine Band” from KC's home state of Florida, the Sunshine State. The group scored 6 top 10 singles, 5 number one singles and one number two single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

In 1981, the partnership between Finch and Casey came to an acrimonious end. Two years after the release of the previous album, the band released two albums with new material: The Painter and Space Cadet. These albums generated little success, but in 1982, a hit track called “Give It Up” from the album All in a Night's Work brought a return to success in the UK, and appeared two years later in the U.S. Top 40. The song was also featured on the band's next album, 1984's KC Ten. Epic Records, however, refused to issue the song as a single due to its prior failure in the U.S. Because of this, a frustrated Casey formed Meca Records, releasing the single himself on this label in a final attempt to garner the song some success in America. It worked, but the album still failed to surpass expectations. This led to the group falling into stasis around 1985 with Casey's retirement.
