Based on the remarkable true story of Saroo Brierly and his 2014 autobiographical book A Long Way Home; Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire) stars in this powerful film as an Indian-born Australian searching for his long lost family.
Accidentally abandoned on the train when 5 years old, Saroo arrives in Calcutta – over 930 miles from his home. Adopted by an Australian family, 25 years later Saroo sets out to find out what became of his biological family, painstakingly retracing his rail journey on the internet.
