The Shack is a 2017 American psychological drama film directed by Stuart Hazeldine and written by John Fusco, based on the 2007 novel of the same name by William P. Young. The film stars Sam Worthington, Octavia Spencer, Graham Greene, Radha Mitchell, Alice Braga and Tim McGraw.

 

Mackenzie ("Mack") Phillips suffered horrific abuse as a child at the hands of his drunken father. As an adult he has a bountiful life with his wife, Nan, and their three children, Kate, Josh and Missy. Mack's life is shattered, however, when their youngest child Missy disappears during a camping trip while he is saving Kate and Josh during a canoeing accident.

 

The police determine Missy is the victim of a serial killer after finding her torn dress and blood in a vacant cabin. The tragedy derails Mack's faith and life until he receives a mysterious telegram signed "Papa" (which is Nan's name for God) inviting him to come to the cabin. Reluctantly accepting, Mack travels there and is overcome with rage and suicidal thoughts, until he meets a mysterious trio of strangers who seek to help him understand, heal and forgive.
