Lion: A Long Way Home

(1)

NOMINATED FOR SIX OSCARS, INCLUDING BEST PICTURE, SUPPORTING ACTOR AND SUPPORTING ACTRESS . . .

Aged just five, Saroo Brierley lost all contact with his family in India, after waiting at a train station for his brother who never returned.

Discover the inspiring, true story behind the film, Lion. This is the heart breaking and original tale of the lost little boy who found his way home twenty-five years later.

-----------------------------------

As a five-year old in India, I got lost on a train. Twenty-five years later, I crossed the world to find my way back home.

Five-year-old Saroo lived in a poor village in India, in a one-room hut with his mother and three siblings... until the day he boarded a train alone and got lost. For twenty-five years.

This is the story of what happened to Saroo in those twenty-five years. How he ended up on the streets of Calcutta. And survived. How he then ended up in Tasmania, living the life of an upper-middle-class Aussie. And how, at thirty years old, with some dogged determination, a heap of good luck and the power of Google Earth, he found his way back home.

Lion is a triumphant true story of survival against all odds and a shining example of the extraordinary feats we can achieve when hope endures.

Laura Koch, Thalia-Buchhandlung Köln

Die unglaublich berührende reale Geschichte eines indischen Adoptivkinds,. Leider vom Schreibstil her etwas holprig, aber dennoch ziemlich fesselnd erzählt!
