The documentary deals with Indian farmers' suicides in southern Punjab's Sangrur district, due to indebtedness from the high cost of inputs - water, mechanized farming, chemical pesticides and fertilizers - and low economic returns. The alarming agricultural scenario in Punjab has been caused by a chain of disruptive historical events and myopic government policies. Punjab has been at the receiving end of the adverse effects of the Green Revolution and the process of trade liberalization and globalization. The film reveals the overwhelming forces behind the worsening agricultural scenario through the tragic stories of seven families of suicide victims. The film also records the views of agricultural scientists and grassroots activists.
