Watch full the shack 2017 movie online. After suffering a family tragedy, Mack Phillips 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. Through this meeting, Mack finds important truths that will transform his understanding of his tragedy and change his life forever.
The Shack by William Paul Young was published in 2007 by Windblown Media. It is a New York Times bestseller, with more than five million copies in print by 2009. The story opens with a few simple characters, including Mackenzie Allen Phillips, his daughter, Missy, his wife, Nan, and a few family friends.
The story turns sinister, however, when Missy gets abducted during an otherwise routine family vacation. Evidence surfaces that she may have been brutally murdered in an abandoned shack, located in the remote Oregon wilderness country. Suspense builds when, four years later, the protagonist, Mack (Sam Worthington) receives a note “from God” (signed by “Papa”) inviting him back to that very same shack for one weekend.
With great reservation and suspicion, Mack goes to the shack. Upon arriving there, Mack is greeted unexpectedly, however, by an African-American woman, Elouisa, who confesses to sending the mysterious note, as she is called “Papa” as a nickname. It is here he also meets other pivotal characters, including Jesus, who is an Asian-looking handyman and maintenance worker, and Sarayu, the gardener. All three of these characters greet Mack upon his arrival at the notorious “shack,” and he is taken aback by their graciousness and hospitality.
