The Handmaid's Tale

The Handmaid's TaleT1218618842
Based on Margaret Atwood's novel. Following a violent overthrow of the United States government by a religious dictatorship, women are denied the right to read, work, own property or enter into relationships other than first marriages. Those who defy the system are arrested, indoctrinated and then assigned to childless families for the sole purpose of procreation. Offred, the title character, attempts to subvert this regime with disturbing and fateful results.
Author Poul Ruder
Lyrics Paul Bentley
