A gripping retelling of the true story of how an Indian man (Saroo), adopted by an Australian family when he was a young street boy in Kolkata, uses Google Earth to retrace his childhood memories of life in a remote Indian village in an attempt to find his birth mother and family.

A brilliant performance by Sunny Pawar who plays the five year old Saroo, and Dev Patel as the adult Saroo.  Supported by Nicole Kidman, David Wenham and Rooney Mara.

This is not a film about Google Earth!  It is a tense yet heart-warming story of love and belonging.

BBFC INSIGHT contains scenes of emotional intensity, mild threat.
