Nominated for an Acadamy Award for Best Foreign Film, Lagaan is the story of a small village in British controlled India in 1893. A drought prevents the villagers from paying the high taxes placed by the British Empire. The villagers make a deal with British officers: If the villagers win a cricket match against the officers then they won't have to pay taxes. If they lose, then they pay triple. The problem is that the small village in India knows nothing about cricket, England's favorite pastime.
