Can he make the move to make new moves?
Sunny is just that - sunny. Always ready with a goofy smile and something nice to say, Sunny is the chillest dude on the Defenders team. But his life hasn't always been sun beamy-bright. You see, Sunny is a murderer. Or at least, he thinks of himself that way. His mother died giving birth to him, and based on how Sunny's dad ignores him, it's no wonder Sunny thinks he's to blame.
It seems the only thing Sunny can do right in his dad's eyes is to win the first place ribbon running the mile, just like his mum did. But Sunny doesn't like running, never has. So he stops. Right in the middle of a race.
With his relationship with his dad now worse than ever, the last thing Sunny wants to do is leave the other newbies -is only friends- behind. But you can't be on the track team and not run. So, Coach asks Sunny what he wants to do. Sunny's answer? Dance. Yes, dance. But you also can't be on the track team and dance...can you?
