In the future the United States is no longer the democratic country it once was, but now is led by power hungry leaders who have created new social classes and taken away all basic human rights from women. Infertility is extremely high due to sexually transmitted diseases and environmental pollution. The few fertile women that remain are labeled as handmaids, and are assigned to the homes of the ruling elite, where they must submit to ritualized rape with their male masters in order to become pregnant and bear children for those men and their wives. The handmaids are stripped of all power and dignity, they must comply to the strict rules issued to them or they will face severe punishment.
