Sia’s “Never Give Up” has a video, a lyric video, kind of.

Two what appears to be very young people and presumably one is none other than Sia’s star Maddie Ziegler are seen running on train tracks to ultimately find each other.

The track is from the soundtrack of the movie Lion, which is based on the true story of Saroo Brierley, who loses his family on a train. Saroo, played by Dev Patel, wonders India in search of his brother in vain. Almost two decades later he regains the hope of finding his mother.

Lion was released on November 24, 2016 and has been described by critics as “tearjerker” and “a sob-inducing true story told with confidence, rather than manipulative cliché.”

“Never Give Up” comes as a very hopeful track to the movie with lines like “I’ll keep gettin’ up when I hit the ground” and the song’s title.
