Sunny California is an epic story of a small step forward. It is the story of adolescence, of being old enough to know everything, but too young to drive.
Derrick, soon to be 16, has sold himself on the dream of California, his promised land where everything goes exactly how he wants, and he gets to be with the one person who means the most: his mother. When he gets suspended from school and his grandfather punishes him, Derrick decides to make his California dream a reality and runs away. But when he asks the wrong man for a ride, Derrick learns that the world is a bigger, meaner place than he thought, and that your true family are the people who are there to care for you.
