Based on the true story of Saroo Brierley, an Indian boy separated from his brother at a train station during their daily hunt for resellable coal. The panicked Saroo climbs aboard a decommissioned train, falls asleep and wakes up to find it moving, taking him 1 600 kilometers away to Calcutta where he doesn’t understand the Bengali language. Good fortune guides him into the loving embrace of adoptive parents from Tasmania. Growing into a fine young man, a sweet food he loved as a child triggers a rush of emotions that sweep away the cushion of comforts that have protected him. He realises that he might be able to find his mother. As Saroo’s obsession overcomes him, he follows his heart as it takes him on a dark and winding path.
