The Tender Trap

A Greenstone TV Production for TVNZ made with the support of NZ On Air

Based on a shocking true story, The Tender Trap reveals how a sensible, middle-aged woman from New Zealand ends up serving time in a Buenos Aires jail for drug trafficking. After a successful 20-year career in public service, Sharon Armstrong moves to Auckland to be closer to her daughter and grandson, but becomes lonelier than ever. Struggling to find work, she begins to feel lost – and inadvertently becomes vulnerable to the false promise of love, falling foul of a targeted romance scam. This is Sharon Armstrong’s story – but, in truth, it could happen to anyone.
