    Poet and novelist, Margaret Atwood is a household name. Millions of her readers know her books from cover to cover, but few know the woman behind these stories. Our film crew keeps pace with Atwood as she jets to speaking engagements around the world, visits the set of The Handmaid’s Tale and spends time with family on holiday. The film reveals Atwood’s upbringing in the Canadian wilderness and her early years as a poet. Atwood’s novels will be explored, her latest as it is delivered to her publisher. Personal stories will be shared by friends, family and, of course, directly by Atwood herself.
