"Harvest of Grief chronicles the growing number of farmer suicides in the northern Indian State of Punjab. The story is told through the eyes of the women and children left behind by these farmers. The film touches upon the human and social cost of 'solutions' to hunger such as the Green Revolution. It explores the severe agricultural crisis caused by economic liberalization, globalization, and the myopic business strategies of profit-seeking multinational corporations."
