A documentary from India about the effects of the highly touted Green Revolution there. Credited with ensuring that India is no longer a developing countries "basket-case", the Green Revolution is widely regarded as one of the most successful development strategies of the 20th century. But this film reveals that in India (specifically in Punjab), it has helped to create a new serf class and the dramatic yields of the early years have fallen away in the wake of pesticide poisoning, fertilizer shortages, and the short-lived miracle wheat strains.
