Five-year-old Saroo loses his cherished older brother in a deserted railway station, falls asleep on an out-of-service train, and finds himself a thousand miles away, alone and adrift in a sprawling, terrifying Calcutta. Adopted by an Australian couple, Saroo grows up yearning for the Indian family left behind, but with only misty childish memories, how will he ever find his way home?
