Lion (PG)

When he was five years old, he got lost on a train travelling away from his home. Years later, living in safety and security in Australia, he yearns to reunite with his family, and decides to use Google Earth to track them down. But his memories are hazy, and it could take years.  Based on Saroo’s book of his experiences, ‘Lion’ is a critically-acclaimed true story that would be almost impossible to believe if it hadn’t actually happened.
