A catastrophic accident in 2013 rendered Sam Bloom paralysed from the chest down, and the lives of the Bloom family were forever transformed. With the loss of her old life came a consuming depression, which Sam bravely countered as she embarked on a momentous journey of relearning who she was and her place in the world.

The immense love and support from her family was amplified by the arrival of a little injured bird, Penguin. Penguin and Sam formed an inextricable bond through their mutual limitations and yearning for the freedom of mobility - Sam to walk and Penguin to fly.

Join Sam and her husband Cameron, caregiver and co-author of the Penguin Bloom story, in conversation where they candidly, honestly and intimately share their story of loss, healing and the future. Taking place at Monkey Baa Theatre, ARA Darling Quarter in Sydney, experience their unique journey through images, video and a Q and A session. You will laugh, cry, connect and most of all be moved at a deeply human level. A transforming conversation not to be missed.
