KYOTO, JAPAN: Rashida Jones stars as Suzie Sakamoto, a grieving woman, who seeks solace in alcohol and a robot after a tragic incident in Apple TV+'s 'Sunny'.

The series opens with Suzie and her mother-in-law, Noriko (Judy Ongg) grappling with a recent tragedy in the family. Suzie's husband and son have gone missing after a plane crash.

While the authorities are able to recover the belongings of several other passengers who died in the crash, Suzie is struggling to get a closure.

Masa's phone still rings unlike the other missing passengers’ cellphones that go to voicemails. None of the belongings of Masa (Hidetoshi Nishijima) and Zen have been recovered, leaving Suzie and Noriko hopeful that they still might be alive, until a twist in Episode 2.

Are Suzie Sakamoto's husband and son dead in 'Sunny'?

In 'Sunny' Episode 2, Sunny brings Masa's shoes to Suzie and shares that someone from the airline came and handed it over.

However, it turns out that a suspicious man sent his robot to pose as airline staff to hand over the shoes.

We can speculate that Masa and Zen are not dead, but an unidentified man wants Suzie to believe otherwise.

Masa's disappearance likely has nothing to do with the airplane crash but is connected to his work as a roboticist at Imatech, a fact Suzie was unaware of throughout their marriage until he went missing.

His disappearance might be related to Imatech's suspicious activities or the man who has been tracking Suzie for reasons yet to be revealed.

Two episodes of 'Sunny' are currently available to stream on Apple TV+
