“Sunlight is...a heartfelt tale of life, love and friendship” Andrew Murray, The Upcoming

Former heroin addict Leo loves his best friend Iver, his former sponsor, the man who saved him. Now Iver is terminally ill and Leon is his devoted carer. But Iver has decided to end his life on his terms, peacefully, with the assistance of nurse Maria, who specialises is assisted dying. Leon is horrified and pledges to take Iver out to all their old Dublin haunts, to convince him that there is still plenty of life left to live.

As the day rolls on the seriousness of Iver’s situation begins to finally hit Leon, he is forced to make a choice: accept Ivers condition and choice, or hide in denial and ultimately give in to the call of heroin again...
