In 1986 a five-year old boy, Saroo, lives with his family in Khandwa, rural India. He and his elder brother steal coal from freight trains to trade for food. During one job the boys are separated and Saroo, having fallen asleep on a moving train, finds himself in Calcutta, 1500 miles away. For a time, he has to live as a street child until he is sent to an orphanage. Soon afterwards he is adopted by an Australian couple, Sue and John Brierley, and goes to live in Tasmania where he grows up in a loving home.
As an adult now studying in Melbourne, Saroo frequently thinks about his lost family and tries to search for them, initially hiding the fact from his adoptive parents and his girlfriend. During a visit to Sue he finally tells her about his search and she supports his efforts.
Based on the non-fiction book "A Long Way Home", the film is a moving account of a young man's search for his biological family.
Stars: Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman, Rooney Mara and David Wenham.
