Anusha Rizvi's debut feature is a satirical political drama portraying the tragicomic plight of two poor farmers in an Indian village. In the village of Peepli, farmers Natha (Omkar Das) and Budhia (Raghuvir Yadav) face losing their land over an unpaid government loan. Desperate, they seek help from an apathetic local politician, who suggests that one of them commit suicide in order to benefit from a government grant scheme set up for the families of indebted deceased farmers. When a journalist hears of their plan, a media frenzy ignites around them and sends shockwaves that extend as far as the arena of national politics.
