When Melanie rebels against the authoritarian religion of her family, she is cut off and has to make her way in life alone. Only then does she learn about Susan who had broken free a generation earlier. Leaving Gilead is the story of two women's struggles to build new lives after growing up in a religion that promotes irrational belief and conformity with arbitrary rules above above personal development.
