Mitte, who has cerebral palsy in real life, gives a winning performance as Travis, a young man livin...g in a ramshackle Sydney rental whose disability contributes to his social isolation and anger management issues. When he loses his maintenance job after lashing out at bullies, Travis ends up in a pub, where he puts his withering sarcasm to good use defending Sunny a reluctant up-and-comer on the comedy circuit from a sexist heckler. Soon Mikey (Sam Reid), the pub's owner and Sunny's overbearing boyfriend, hires Travis to help train Sunny in the art of the comeback, and naturally sparks ensue along with romance and laughs aplenty. Standing Up for Sunny is a lively comedy with plenty to say about living with disability and discrimination.

Roberts comical lack of DIY experience leads him to seek help from some colourful locals including the no nonsense Kate (Lindsay Duncan), an ex-pat making her living selling villas who quickly captures his attention. For Jack, the state of the house seems to mirror his search for memories of happier times with his mother. He soon falls for Natalia (Valeria Bilello), a vivacious young Italian chef, who restores both body and soul with delights from her local trattoria until the pair find their developing relationship in jeopardy from Natalias jealous and threatening ex-husband. As Robert and Jack painstakingly restore the villa to its previous glory, they also start to mend their relationship. The future may now look quite different and surprise them both.
