"Penguin Bloom" is the true story of a unique little bird that saves a family. Cameron (Andrew Lincoln) and Sam Bloom (Naomi Watts) and their three boys were an everyday family until a shocking, near-fatal accident left Sam paralyzed. She fell from a balcony while on holiday in Thailand, and was left paralyzed from the chest down.
As the family struggled to adjust to her new situation, an unlikely ally entered their lives in the form of an injured Magpie chick which the Bloom clan called Penguin. The wild bird became a mascot for the family.
