Penguin Bloom tells the true story of SpinalCure Ambassador Sam Bloom (played by Academy Award nominated Naomi Watts), a young mother whose world is turned upside down after a near-fatal spinal cord injury leaves her paralysed. Sam’s husband Cameron (Andrew Lincoln), her three young boys and her mother (Academy Award nominated Jacki Weaver) are struggling to adjust to their new situation when an unlikely ally enters their world in the form of an injured baby magpie they name Penguin.
