    At only five years old, Saroo Brierley got lost on a train in India. Unable to read or write or recall the name of his hometown or even his own last name, he survived alone for weeks on the rough streets of Calcutta before ultimately being transferred to an agency and adopted by a couple in Australia. Despite his gratitude, Brierley always wondered about his origins. One day, after years of searching, he miraculously found what he was looking for and set off to find his family.

    C'est un jour comme un autre dans la vie de Saroo. Le garçon, âgé de cinq ans, est dans une gare du fin fond de l'Inde en train de ramasser quelques pièces lorsqu'il monte dans un train à quai. Le lendemain, Saroo se réveille à Calcutta. Dans l'immense ville, il est complètement seul, sans aucun papier. Il est recueilli par un orphelinat où, quelques mois plus tard, un couple d'Australiens va l'adopter. Saroo grandit, mais, depuis l'Australie, il pense toujours à sa famille biologique. Pendant 25 ans, il scrute les villages indiens sur Internet, à la recherche d'images familières.

    Es ist ein Tag wie jeder andere im Leben des fünfjährigen Saroo: Auf dem Bahnhof einer indischen Kleinstadt sucht er nach Münzen und Essensresten. Schließlich schläft er vor Erschöpfung in einem wartenden Zug ein. Der fährt den kleinen Jungen ans andere Ende von Indien, nach Kalkutta. Völlig alleine an einem der gefährlichsten Orte der Welt schlägt er sich wochenlang auf der Straße durch, landet im Waisenhaus und gelangt so zu den Brierleys, die Saroo ein neues Zuhause in Australien schenken.
