    • Synopsis
    • MACKENZIE “MACK” ALLEN PHILLIPS (Sam Worthington) enjoys a blissful life with his wife and their three children, until the unthinkable happens and his youngest daughter MISSY is abducted from their vacation campsite. Evidence indicates Missy has been murdered, but her body is never recovered. The tragedy sends Mack spiraling into “the great sadness” that isolates him from family and friends, causing him to question his innermost fundamental beliefs. Teetering on the edge of self-destruction, he receives a mysterious letter, apparently from God, urging him back to the scene of the crime—an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness.

      Despite his doubts and fears, Mack journeys to the wintry mountain woods to revisit the most agonizing moments of his life and encounters an enigmatic trio of strangers led by a woman called PAPA (Octavia Spencer), at the shack. Through them, Mack will find important truths that will transform his understanding of Missy’s tragedy and change his life forever.
