內容簡介

一個走失的5歲印度男孩,花了25年時間,重返故鄉的動人故事。已改拍成電影”Lion”,由《貧民百萬富翁》男主角戴夫.帕托、妮可.基嫚與魯尼.瑪拉主演,預計2016下半年上映。

Saroo是一個出生在印度中部貧窮鄉間的男孩,與母親、兩個哥哥和唯一的妹妹住在一棟破舊的小屋裡,每天過著這餐過了不知下一餐在哪裡的生活。在他快5歲的時候,為了找哥哥,他誤搭上了一班往加爾各答的火車,他不知道家鄉叫什麼名字,也不識字,從此便與家人失去了聯繫,之後被一對澳洲夫婦收養,在塔斯馬尼亞過著幸福的日子。他的養母在他的房間牆上貼著一幅印度地圖,Saroo從來沒有忘記過他的原生家庭。25年後,他憑藉著僅存的模糊記憶以及科技(Good Earth與Facebook),還有如磐石般堅定的決心,以及生母與養父母源源不絕的愛,找到了他的故鄉,與原生家庭重聚。

透過這本書,我們看到了一個小男孩,如何在龍蛇雜處、危機處處的加爾各答,靠著聰明與運氣,過了六周獨自一人的生活;他的生母如何篤定Saroo一定會回到故鄉,所以從來沒有想搬離那棟陋屋的念頭;他的養父母如何支持他尋找原生家庭;最重要的是,從未放棄過的希望,讓他在25年後,踏上了漫漫歸鄉路。

As a little boy in India, Saroo Brierley got lost on a train. Twenty-five years later, from Australia, he found his way back. This is what happened in between.

Born in a poor village in India, Saroo lived hand-to-mouth in a one room hut with his mother and three siblings…until at age five, he mistakenly boarded a train by himself, and ended up in Calcutta, all the way across the country. Uneducated, illiterate, and unable to recall the name of his hometown, he managed to survive for weeks on that city’s rough streets.

Soon after, he was adopted by a couple in Tasmania. But despite growing up in a loving upper-middle class Aussie family, Saroo still clung to the last memories of his hometown and family in India, and always wondered if he’d ever find them again. Amazingly, twenty-five years later, with some dogged determination and a heap of luck—and the advent of Google Earth—he did.

A Long Way Home is a poignant and inspirational true story of survival and triumph against incredible odds, celebrating the importance of never letting go of what drives the human spirit: hope.
