A satire on the farmers' suicides and subsequent media and political response, Peepli Live is competing in the Sundance Film Festival, the first film from Bollywood to achieve this feat. However for the Indian release the film got an 'A' adult certificate. The movie has been picked up by specialty German distribution company Rapid Eye Movies for a special screening at the ongoing Berlin International Film Festival.
Natha a poor farmer from Peepli village in the heart of rural India is about to lose his plot of land due to an unpaid government loan. A quick fix to the problem is the very same government's program that aids the families of indebted farmers who have committed suicide. As a means of survival Farmer Natha can choose to die!!! His brother is happy to push him towards this unique 'honor' but Natha is reluctant. Local elections are around the corner and what might've been another unnoticed event turns into a 'cause celebré' with everyone wanting a piece of the action. Political bigwigs, high ranking bureaucrats, local henchmen and the ever zealous media descend upon sleepy Peepli to stake their claim. The question on everyone's lips "Will he or Won't he?" As the mania escalates what will be the fate of Farmer Natha; nobody seems to care how he really feels?
