Uncork’d Entertainment is proud to announce the North American theatrical and digital release of the acclaimed Australian crime-drama "West of Sunshine."

A captivating social-realist story from debut feature filmmaker Jason Raftopoulos, the celebrated film – hot from an outstanding response, complete with standing ovation, at the Venice Film Festival - tells of a father who has less than a day to pay back a gambling debt, while looking after his young son.

Separated from his family and caught in a cycle of gambling and debt, Jim has less than a day to repay a violent loan shark.

His day is turned upside down when he must look after his young son.

Jim's relationship with his son is tested as his plans to pay back the loan fail.

When his last desperate effort to repay the debt puts his son's life at risk, he must make a choice between his past and a second chance at life.

Featuring powerful performances from Damian Hill (“The Leftovers”), Ty Perham, Arthur Angel (Red Dog), Kat Stewart (“Underbelly”), Eliza D’Souza (Predestination) and Kaarin Fairfax (“Picnic at Hanging Rock”), "Welcome to Sunshine" is a “nigh-perfect slice of inner city Australian cinema” (Filmink) that befittingly finds its home alongside Aussie crime drama classics like Chopper and Two Hands.
