The plot

The series is based on the book of the same name by Margaret Atwood. The dystopian series boasts an all-star cast, including Elisabeth Moss, Samira Wiley and Alexis Bledel. This is the official synopsis of the series:

Adapted from the classic novel by Margaret Atwood, 'The Handmaid's Tale' is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism in its militarized "return to traditional values." As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander's household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate the world. In this terrifying society, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.
