Portrait of Bengali farmers.
Story: At the Singur Block Development Office (BDO), two elderly brothers try to fix an irregularity with the cheque that had been issued by the Block Development Office to buy their land. As is the case with most farmers on the land, they have been working their fields (now property of Tata Motors Company) all their lives.  Government pressures to sell their land following the acquisition, left them with the feeling they had little other choice.
