Summary taken from container.
On the week of local elections in the Indian village of Peepli, two poor farmers, Natha and Budhia, face losing their land over an unpaid government loan. Desperate, they seek help from an apathetic local politician who suggests they commit suicide to benefit from a government program that aids the families of indebted deceased farmers. When a journalist overhears Budhia urge Natha to 'do what needs to be done', a media frenzy ignites around whether or not Natha will commit suicide.
