The Sunshine Centre Community Halls, otherwise known as The Sunny, is a cultural and social hub in a particularly rainy housing scheme on the outskirts of Glasgow. A venue to some, a haven to others.

The Sunny is a warm sitcom celebration of life, friendship, patter and early evening yoga classes.

Margaret makes sure the door is always open at The Sunny and for regulars Joe, Wullie, Emma, Kris and Haircut it's the centre of the known universe. It's more than just a place to let off steam and get out of the rain. It's a necessity. A sanctuary.

But it's not all empathy, cuddles and cups of tea. Step out of line or show the wrong attitude and your trainers might just end up in the toaster. As Charlie Dolan discovers when he returns to The Sunny after a stint in the big smoke, London.

Once Charlie's band, the Shoe Ponies, were the toast of the pop scene - now he's back home with his tail between his legs. But a new start isn't guaranteed at The Sunny.
