The Handmaid's Tale
SBS Viceland  |  August 18, 2019

Following a coup, America is a country still at war with itself and ruled by a repressive Bible-inspired regime. Past pollution means only 1 percent of women can bear children, and female criminals found to be potential mothers are put into an institution run by Aunt Lydia to be indoctrinated. One such is Kate, who then seduces Fred, a higher-up in the security forces, to attempt to procreate. Fred's wife Serena is jealous and vicious, and the State's grip seems to be tightening. But Kate still has her own mind, and is finding that some other people are prepared to resist. Based on the Margaret Atwood novel.
