Biography

Aged five, Saroo got lost in a train station near his home town in India. Desperately looking for his older brother, he ended up boarding a train destination unknown, only to find himself in Calcutta after a two-day non-stop trip. For two months, he survived and begged in the streets of the city, before being adopted to Australian parents. 25 years after that, he still couldn´t forget his past and the family he had left behind. His is a self-determination and inspiring story about how he managed to find his biological family and his first trip back to India, after the search of a lifetime.
