Synopsis

The story of a remarkable true-life long journey home that crosses the chaos and beauty of two continents. Five-year-old Saroo gets lost on a train which takes him thousands of miles across India,  Twenty-five years later, settled in Australia,  and armed with only a handful of memories, his unwavering determination, and the new technology known as Google Earth, he sets out to find his lost family and finally return to his birthplace. But the search for the past threatens to overwhelm the present, and Saroo finds himself further adrift than he ever imagined possible. Newcomer Sunny Pawar lights up the screen as the young boy, and Bafta winning/Oscar nominated Dev Patel delivers a deeply moving performance as the adult Saroo. Director Garth Davis, writer Luke Davies and photographer Greig Fraser bring depth, breadth and beauty to a powerful, multi-layered and inspirational story in which home transcends borders and family transcends blood.
