The film traces the long career of avant-garde drummer Sunny Murray , one of the most influential people in the free jazz revolution. A series of interviews with important contemporary witnesses and historical and current film material from concerts not only pay tribute to the personality of the drummer, but also show the connection between the political movements of the 1960s, their social demands and their visible reflection in the development of free music. The film shows how particularly radical forms of musical expression were excluded from the music industry and at the same time the free music ideal went out of fashion. In addition to flashbacks, the film follows Murray's current appearances and shows the everyday efforts to maintain a musical genre that is ignored by the general public. Sunny's Time Now also deals with the almost clandestine fan base, who continue to adore the cult figures of their own adolescence, and whose unbroken support has made free improvised music possible.
