A five-year-old Indian boy gets lost on the streets of Calcutta, where he doesn’t understand the local Bengali language, thousands of kilometres from home. A young man eventually takes him to the police. Unable to trace his family, they put him in an orphanage.
He survives many challenges before being adopted by a couple in Australia. Twenty years later, the young man, moves to Melbourne to study hotel management. Eventually he sets out to find his lost family.
He later learned that he had been mispronouncing his own name, which was actually Sheru, a diminutive for sher, the Hindi word for “lion”.
