"We all fell in love with the life-affirming nature of Sam's story and her undeniable spirit," the film's producers said in a press release. "The emotional journey she and her family go on after Penguin enters their lives is unforgettable. We have a wonderful partner in Netflix and we're delighted they will be bringing Penguin Bloom to audiences around the world."
