As Mack struggles to make sense of such enormous tragedy, he descends into a “great sadness” where his life starts to unravel and all the ghosts that he thought he had buried long ago, resurface and push him to the edge of a precipice. It is at this time, at his darkest hour, that Mack receives a mysterious note in his mailbox with an invitation from God to meet at the shack—the place where Missy’s bloody dress was found. In a desperate attempt to ?nd closure and answers to his daughter’s murder, Mack heads back into the Oregon wilderness to confront the killer or God…or both.
