This is well worth your time. I just came across it on the net! Original and well acted and shot. No doubt there's symbolism and illuminatti all over it... hidden and not so hidden. Sacrificial scenes!


#www.imdb.com...

Set in a dystopian future, a woman is forced to live as a concubine under a fundamentalist theocratic dictatorship.

WATCH IT.

No zombies in sight but it is chilling and will creep you out in a weird kind of way.

It is some people's wet dream to control women like this.
Awesome book and a good TV show it is a reminder that women's reproductive systems are controlled by some still around the world.

It's pretty dark from the beginning really, but... I don't want to spoil anything.

Keep watching, if you've loved it so far then it only gets better.

Better is an odd word due to it being hallowing tbh, We got to read the book in school, I think everyone should read it.

Who needs to watch a FICTIONAL western dramatization of EVERY DAY middle eastern life?

It's worth watching trust me.

Although it does depict what it's like in a few religions and what it could be like. It's quite unerving to see it. Women held like cattle.

It's pretty effing sad people pass off propaganda pieces as 'good tv'.

If you are going to watch this you will like it more if you see season 1 first. Otherwise you will not really understand 2.
