December 15, 2014. A gunman took 18 hostages in the heart of Sydney. 17 hours later, the terrorist would be shot dead, 2 innocent hostages would be killed and Australia’s iconic city would be stained forever. Louisa Hope and her Mum walked into the cafe that morning and left just after 2am the next day, wheeled out on ambulance beds after being shot in the crossfire. This is Louisa’s story of the moment that changed Australia forever – The Sydney Siege.
