Delphine (Izïa Higelin) est une fille d'agriculteurs qui exploitent une ferme dans le Limousin. Célibataire endurcie pour ses parents, elle entretient en réalité une relation amoureuse avec une jeune femme. Mais très vite, cette dernière la quitte pour se marier avec un homme afin d'avoir une situation acceptable aux yeux des habitants de la région. Cette déception amoureuse pousse Delphine à changer de mode de vie et elle monte faire des études à Paris, où elle arrive en 1971. Elle loge dans une chambre de bonne. Un jour, elle voit dans la rue un groupe de femmes qui courent et mettent la main aux fesses des hommes au passage en criant des slogans féministes. Lorsqu'un passant réagit violemment contre l'une des femmes, Delphine intervient, repousse l'homme et s'éloigne spontanément avec le groupe. Ce sont des étudiantes de la Sorbonne qui font partie du Mouvement de libération des femmes (MLF). La jeune femme que Delphine a tirée d'affaire, Carole (Cécile de France), est une professeure d'espagnol. Delphine est aussitôt attirée par Carole et commence à fréquenter régulièrement les réunions du groupe. Elle découvre ainsi les luttes sociales pour les droits des femmes, le droit à l'avortement et à la contraception, et les discussions sur le degré de radicalité à adopter (faut-il ou non admettre les hommes, ce qui risque de brider la parole des femmes, ou tenir des réunions non mixtes), les types d'action à adopter et les discussions au sujet du bien-fondé ou non de la convergence des luttes avec d'autres revendications.

Set in the late 18th century, the story follows the life of Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire. Well known for her beauty and fashion sense, she is also remembered for her extravagance and gambling habits. Despite the blatant infidelities of her husband, the cold and much older William Cavendish, the 5th Duke of Devonshire, Georgiana thrives, becoming a fashion icon, a doting mother, a shrewd political operator, and darling of the common people. In befriending Lady Bess Foster, Georgiana is crushed when Bess and The Duke begin an affair. Despite Georgiana's anger, the Duke wants Bess to remain living with them. Bess later explains to Georgiana that the reason she began the affair with the Duke was so that she could get her children back. The Duke wants a male heir, which the Duchess has not yet provided. The idea is that Bess can, since she already has three sons, of whom the Duke is very fond, treating them as if they were his own.

In the near future war rages across the fictional Republic of Gilead and pollution has rendered 99% of the population sterile. Kate is a woman attempting to emigrate to Canada with her husband and daughter. While attempting to take a dirt road, they are caught by the Gilead Border Guard, who orders them to turn back or they will open fire. Kate's husband uses an automatic rifle to draw the fire, telling Kate to run, but he gets shot, Kate gets captured, whilst their daughter wanders off into the backcountry confused and unaccompanied. The authorities take Kate to a training facility with several other women, where they are all trained to become a Handmaid, a concubine for one of the privileged but barren couples who rule the country's religious fundamentalist regime. Although she resists being indoctrinated into the cult of the Handmaids, mixing Old Testament orthodoxy and misogyny with 12-step gospel and ritualized violence, Kate is soon assigned to the home of the Commander and his cold, inflexible wife, Serena Joy.
