That a video combining that unsettling premise with an abandoned train yard can turn out so inspiring is a tribute to Sia’s brilliant creative vision. Just try to hold back those tears when the two lost children finally reach each other and link hands in perfect harmony.

Appearing on the Lion soundtrack, Sia’s ‘Never Give Up’ will accompany a film based on Saroo Brierley’s memoir, ‘A Long Way Home’. The story follows a five-year-old Brierley after he falls asleep on a train and wakes in Calcutta, only to be adopted by an Australian couple. He tries to find his birth mother through Google Earth, after leaving his poverty-stricken life behind.

‘Never Give Up’ is Sia’s contribution to the ‘Lion’ film, starring Nicole Kidman and Dev Patel, out January 20 in the UK.
