Storyline

A religion-based autocracy has taken over most of the United States, renaming the country Gilead. In this country women are second-class citizens. Anyone trying to escape is punished. One such person is June, who is captured while trying to escape with her husband and child and is sentenced to be a handmaid, bearing children for childless government officials. As a handmaid, June is renamed Offred. This is her story. Written by grantss

A Very Timely Series That Is a Must See
28 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Like others on here, I too could regale you with moving words that would depict my experience and thoughts while watching this. I thought it best however to simply suggest that those who believe such a thing could not happen, or that we are nowhere near what is depicted in this show, scroll down and read the review by gene0915 from United States (unfortunately it has been deleted or removed now).

See for yourself how that level of rage, bitterness, hate, misogyny, impotence and homophobia is alive and well.

Enough said.

This is a powerful series with a tremendous message and a must-see for every person alive.
