Sophie* never meant to come to Darwin. In fact, she’d never heard of the Northern Territory until she got chatting to a local man online. They hit it off and Sophie left her home in the United States to be with her new love. She didn’t get very far though - during a stopover at the airport, things started going pear shaped...

Sophie shared her story live on Friday 8 March 2019 at SPUN at the Michael Long Centre where the theme was BACKBONE.

*Not her real name
