Saroo must learn to survive alone in Kolkata, before ultimately being adopted by an Australian couple. Twenty-five years later, armed with only a handful of memories, his unwavering determination, and a revolutionary technology known as Google Earth, he sets out to find his lost family and finally return to his first home.

Lion is a big-hearted film with beautiful acting and worthy of the 4 Academy Award nominations it received. A truly exceptional film.
