Based on the extraordinary true story of Saroo Brierley, LION was adapted for the screen by Luke Davies from Saroo’s autobiography ‘A Long Way Home’.
At the age of five, Saroo was lost on a train which took him thousands of kilometers across India, away from home and family. Saroo survived alone on the streets of Kolkata, before ultimately being adopted by Tasmanian couple, Sue and John Brierley.
Twenty five years later, armed with only a handful of memories, his unwavering determination, and the revolutionary technology Google Earth, he set out to find his lost family and finally return to his first home.
LION stars Nicole Kidman, Dev Patel, Rooney Mara and David Wenham and is produced by the Academy-Award® producers of The Kings Speech, Emile Sherman and Iain Canning, and Angie Fielder. Director is Garth Davis (Top of the Lake).
