Saroo was an adventurous five-year-old, living with his mother and siblings in an impoverished rural township in India. One night, when out with his older brother, he falls asleep in a stationary train carriage becoming trapped on board. Days later, he arrives in Kolkata, hundreds of miles from home. Ending up in an orphanage, he is adopted by an Australian couple. 25 years later, the adult Saroo (Dev Patel) is haunted by memories of his past and begins an obsessive search for his original family.
