Where the Crawdads Sing (2022)

Plot: Barkley Cove, North Carolina, October 1969. As damp, sparkling clusters of Spanish Moss sway along with the gnarled branches of ancient oak trees and the bird calls mingle with the loud, high-pitched buzz of the cicadas, two boys stumble upon a gruesome discovery within the muddy marsh: the lifeless body of Chase Andrews, the best quarterback the town ever had. But tall tales about easy target Kya Clark--an abused, abandoned, and ostracised young woman surviving out there on her own--keep the rumour mill churning, hurting the shunned, lonely girl raised by nature. Now, the townsfolk's obsession has evolved into conviction, and 25 long years of hatred and hostility culminate in the quintessence of all evil: the death of innocence. Can Barkley Cove be fair to the Marsh Girl??

Alternative Plot: From the best-selling novel comes a captivating mystery. Where the Crawdads Sing tells the story of Kya, an abandoned girl who raised herself to adulthood in the dangerous marshlands of North Carolina. For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" haunted 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 as to what actually happened becomes increasingly unclear, threatening to reveal the many secrets that lay within the marsh.
