In India, if you are a farmer, you might be worth more to your family dead than alive. When the media gets scent of a country bumpkin planning to end it all, in order to pull down state cash, all hell lets loose. Suddenly we have a national story worthy of manipulation by the top politicians. The film was produced and brought to world attention by Aamir Khan, a Bollywood legend.
