Penguin Bloom Plot
Australian Sam Bloom (Watts) is enjoying a blissful vacation in Thailand when a horrifying accident sends her falling storeys down to the pavement. Life changes in an instant for her, but also for her husband, Cameron (Andrew Lincoln), and their three children. Back home, Sam’s painful adjustment to her new disability leaves her unable to appreciate her idyllic home and a family trying to connect. When the family takes in a stray magpie, naming it Penguin for its black-and-white plumage, Sam is practically scornful. But the little bird cries when it needs help, forcing Sam to focus on more than her own hurt. Against her better judgment, Sam begins to tend to Penguin.
