The film is about the struggle between Agriculture as a part of a Centuries
long Culture in India and "Developed' Agriculture as one sees it today. The clash between the two and how the farmer as the basic participant in the struggle is the focus of the Film. The film seeks to understand the issue of food-security in the Indian context. It also raises questions about bio-safety and bio-ethics and the entry of MNCs, like Monsanto, into a country that still looks towards a field, rather than a lab, for its sustenance.
