Synopsis

Poet and novelist, Margaret Atwood is a household name. Yet few know the private Margaret Atwood. Who is the woman and writer behind these stories?

The film crew keeps pace with Atwood as she jets to speaking engagements around the world, visits the set of The Handmaid’s Tale and takes a family holiday. The film explores Atwood’s early days in the Canadian wilderness and as a shining star of the CanLit scene. Atwood’s novels will be explored, including her latest,The Testaments, the highly anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale. Personal stories will be shared by friends, family and by the author herself.
 

Margaret Atwood’s The Testaments has been awarded the 2019 Booker Prize.
