Saroo, a young Indian boy, becomes separated from his older brother Guduu. They live in a small room in an alleyway. Their mother lugs rocks for a living, these young boys steal coal from a train. A tough life, but they are well loved and care for each other. On this day Saroo goes missing, and after a long train ride finds himself 1200 miles from his home. He is put in an orphanage, and after a bit adopted.
Saroo finds a new life with wonderful people who become his parents. They live in Tasmania, and adopt another young boy who has some serious mental issues. However, love conquers all. We find Saroo at age 25, at college, training to be a hotel manager. And then, he begins his journey back to himself.
Such an emotional roller coaster, filled with twists and turns, and longing and love. A film that should be seen by all, it will open your heart. Dav Patel excels in this film, Nicole Kidman is also brilliant. The small Saroo, Sunny Prewar, is an amazing young boy. A film filled with heartache, but mostly love.

You see the harsh conditions of a lost boy on the streets with no identity. Luckily he was adopted by loving parents but again that took him further away from finding his biological family. His story is a miracle.
But all and all, I enjoyed the movie!
