After an attack wipes out most of the United States government, the Republic of Gilead is formed. Now the northeastern coast of the United States is controlled by a group of religious fanatics, and men have lost many of their rights, and women even more.

As Offred dreams of her past before Gilead's conception, she hopes to one day regain her freedom.
