'From the moment Larry Buttrose heard the story about Saroo Brierley, he knew what a remarkable one it was.

A five-year-old boy loses his family at an Indian train station, spends 32 hours on a train, three weeks alone on the streets of Kolkata, then gets placed in an orphanage where an Australian family adopts him and takes him to Hobart.'
