Five year old Saroo (Dev Patel of Slumdog Millionaire) gets lost on a train which takes him thousands of miles across India, away from home and family. Saroo must learn to survive alone in Kolkata, before ultimately being adopted by an Australian couple (Nicole Kidman of Moulin Rouge, Australia and David Wenham of Lord of the Rings, Pope Joan). 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 lost family and finally return to his first home.
ABOUT SIA (SINGER-SONGWRITER)
Singer and songwriter Sia Furler has long been known as a hitmaker for the likes of Rihanna and Beyoncé. Although raised in Australia, Furler rose to fame after moving to the U.K., where she was a member of several groups – including the electronica duo Zero 7 – after releasing her first single, “Taken for Granted,” in early 2000. Working alongside bassist Sam Dixon over the following years, she boosted her songwriting cred by writing several songs for Christina Aguilera, who put the songs on her 2010 release, Bionic. Sia also continued writing songs for herself, and We Are Born marked her most upbeat album to date. It also went on to become very successful, charting around the world and going to number two in Australia. The next few years she spent out of the spotlight, continuing her parallel career as a backroom songwriter for the likes of Britney Spears, Beyoncé, Celine Dion, and Rihanna, for whom she wrote the worldwide number one smash hit Diamonds. In 2013, she started on a new album, working once again with producer Greg Kurstin.
