The documentary is the story of Karenjit Kaur Vaura, born to an immigrant Sikh family in Ontario. She defies the rigid and moralistic model of her culture. After moving with her family to California, she stumbles into the world of pornography, rebranding herself Sunny Leone. She achieved major success as an adult actor, being titled 'Penthouse Pet of the Year’.

The film then focuses on her move to India, entering Bollywood and facing all the challenges and stigma, rooting herself into the very culture she had formerly rejected. In India, she has been the ‘most Googled’ celebrity for five years, she has massive social media followings, and is overall having a successful career.
Mostly Sunny is directed by filmmaker and photojournalist Dilip Mehta and produced by Craig Thompson. Says Mehta about the film:
“The story of Sunny Leone is fascinating because it touches on so many relevant and conflicting themes. On one hand it’s an immigrant story – but a story unlike any other. At the same time, it’s a reflection of how in India, culture and religion continue to be a source of conflict with the ‘Western’ way of life.”
