After a wrong train takes a five-year-old Indian boy thousands of kilometers from home and family, he survives many challenges before being adopted by an Australian couple. Twenty-five years later, armed with only the scantest of clues, he learns of a new technology called Google Earth, and sets out to find his lost family. This cinematic and inspirational film is based on a true story and anchored by Dev Patel’s riveting performance. Also starring Rooney Mara and Nicole Kidman.
In English, Bengali and Hindi with English subtitles.

“This story of a small boy lost in a sprawling land finds truly epic proportions, not because it’s trying to go big, but exactly the opposite: it’s determined to find meaning in the beings, things and feelings we often deem too small to matter.” - Katherine Monk, Ex-Press.com
