Have you ever watched The Handmaid’s Tale and wondered what happens to girls born in this society? Girls who never knew the “normal” world? Well, Level 16 may give you an idea. Written and directed by Danishka Esterhazy, Level 16 is an original film, but one that shares more than a little DNA with the hit Hulu show thanks to its subject matter, pathos, and disturbing timeliness.

Yandy is pretty well known for making "sexy" costumes out of anything — from South Park to Slender Man.

It's a moment nine months in the making - although, in another way, it's been in the works a lot longer than that. The most recent episode of The Handmaid's Tale isn't just a gorgeous hour of television, it's done something few other shows or films ever have: It gave us the miracle of life, in all its pain and beauty.

The Handmaid's Tale is a story about women in an eerily plausible dystopia where men have taken total control. While the struggles of the Handmaids are obviously still the main focus, Serena Joy, Commander Fred Waterford's wife, has emerged as one of season two's most fascinating characters: She's someone we loathe for her support of Gilead and its oppression of women, but someone we can't help but sympathise with as she grapples with the monster she helped create.
