Saroo Brierley[edit]

  • Do you have any idea what it's like knowing my real brother and mother spending every day of their lives looking for me? Huh? How every day my real brother screams my name? Can you imagine the pain they must be in not knowing where I am?

Dialogue[edit]

Saroo Brierley: I'm sorry you couldn't have your own kids.
Sue Brierley: What are you saying?
Saroo Brierley: We... we... weren't blank pages, were we? Like your own would have been. You weren't just adopting us but our past as well. I feel like we're killing you.
Sue Brierley: I could have had kids.
Saroo Brierley: What?
Sue Brierley: We chose not to have kids. We wanted the two of you. That's what we wanted. We wanted the two of you in our lives.That's what we chose. [pause] That's one of the reasons I fell in love with your dad. [pause] Because we both felt as if... the world has enough people in it. Have a child, couldn't guarantee it will make anything better. But to take a child that's suffering like you boys were. Give you a chance in the world. That's something.

[Saroo eats Jalebis, a fried Indian desert, that stirs a memory]
Lucy: Saroo? You OK?
Male Dinner Guest: Saroo?
Saroo Brierley: I'm not from Calcutta... I'm lost.
