Where the Crawdads Sing (15)

Mystery-thriller adaptation of the best-selling novel, about an abandoned girl who raises herself to adulthood in the dangerous marshlands of North Carolina.

Where the Crawdads Sing tells the story of Kya, an endlessly resourceful girl who grows up in a marsh after being abandoned by her parents and older siblings. For years, rumours of the 'Marsh Girl' haunt Barkley Cove, isolating the sharp and resilient Kya from her community.

Drawn to two young men from town, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world—but when one of them is found dead, she is immediately cast by the community as the main suspect. As the case unfolds, the verdict about what actually happened becomes increasingly unclear, threatening to reveal the many secrets that lie within the marsh.
