LION is a drama in which a five-year-old Indian boy finds himself lost in Kolkata, thousands of miles from home. After being sent to Australia for adoption, he returns to India as a young adult in order to find his real mother and brother.
There are scenes of emotional intensity during the young man's seemingly impossible search for his long-lost mother and brother.
Sequences of mild threat include a scene in which a small boy finds himself trapped on a decommissioned train as it speeds him away from home, and a scene in which a group of men chase and attempt to catch children who are living rough on the streets of Kolkata.
Other scenes discreetly draw attention to the vulnerability of street children and orphans, particularly from abusive adults.
