The rains have failed, and the people of a small Indian village in Victorian India hope that they will be excused from paying the crippling land tax that their British rulers have imposed. Instead, the capricious British officer in charge challenges them to a game of cricket, a game totally alien and unknown to them. If they win, they get their wish; if they lose, however, the increased tax burden will destroy their lives. The people are terrified, but one man thinks the challenge is worth staking their entire future on.--sd268

En 1893, au centre de l'Inde, les villageois de Champaner attendent en vain la mousson.

Le jeune Bhuvan, meneur de la révolte contre cette injustice, se voit proposer par l'officier un terrible pari : si les Indiens battent les anglais au cours d'un match de cricket, ils seront exemptés de lagaan pendant trois ans, mais en cas de défaite, ils devront payer le triple du montant
