The Shack – A parable of faith, family and forgiveness.

After suffering a family tragedy, Mack Phillips (Sam Worthington) spirals into a deep depression causing him to question his innermost beliefs. Facing a crisis of faith, he receives a mysterious letter urging him to an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness.

Despite his doubts, Mack journeys to the shack and encounters an enigmatic trio of strangers led by a woman named Papa (Octavia Spencer). Through this meeting, Mack finds important truths that will transform his understanding of his tragedy and change his life forever.

Earlier this year, millions of people all over the world took this journey with Mack and saw The Shack at the cinema. The book, published in 2007, became a New York Times bestseller – and the film took nearly $100 million at the global box office.
