Borrowing from Sarah Waters’ 2002 novel Fingersmith, The Handmaiden translates the book’s Victorian setting to Japanese-occupied Korea in the early 20th century. The story of wealth and obsession centres on a Japanese Heiress, her maid, and a con man. Queer people throughout history have often been forced to hide their identities, so through this fun, sexy period drama, we can reimagine these lost or hidden stories with all the enjoyment that comes with the fantastical world of fiction.
