On the outside Saroo (Dev Patel) looks like one of the most well-adjusted kids in the world. He is going to school to become a manager of a hotel. He has a beautiful girlfriend with which he goes to many social gatherings with. His brother is a pain in the butt, but, eh, my brother is too, so what’s there that isn’t for most of us? Take a look at his loving parents though and you know instantly that he is not theirs: he was adopted. Though being adopted is not too unusual in this day and age, what makes Saroo different is that he was never put up for adoption in the first place. He got lost in India one day and was unable to find his way home. He walked the streets of another country for two years before government officials finally put him in an orphanage and the loving couple he now eats dinner with decided to take him in.
Parents, there are some scenes of sexuality and some brief language. Recommended for ages 13 and up.
