SBS  |  December 1, 2019

Margaret Atwood has never been more relevant than she is today. Readers are turning to her work as they face the rise of authoritarian politics, rapidly evolving technologies, and the slow-motion disaster of climate change. Her poetry and books are about survival, but they are also survival tools in and of themselves. The recent success of the television adaptation of her novel, The Handmaid's Tale, has made Atwood a household name. Yet few know the private Margaret Atwood. Who is the woman behind these stories? How does she seem to know what is to come? With exclusive access over a 12-month period, this documentary follows Atwood and her partner, author and activist Graeme Gibson, as they jet to speaking engagements around the world.
