Directed by Garth Davis and written by Luke Davies, LION is based on the book ‘A Long Way Home’ by Saroo Brierley with Larry Buttrose. The movie is about a five-year-old boy, Saroo, who gets lost in a train which takes him thousands of kilometers across India, away from home and family. After surviving on the streets for months, he is eventually adopted by a compassionate couple in Australia.
Twenty-five years later, armed with only a handful of memories, his unwavering determination, and a revolutionary technology known as Google Earth, he sets out to find his birth mother.
Sunny Pawar stuns as a young Saroo, with his sincerity towards the character shining through his impeccable performance. The deeply moving LION celebrates the power of family and love, while exploring the complexity of relationships.
