    1. Where the Crawdads Sing tells the fictional story of Kya, a girl left to raise herself along a North Carolina bayou in the 1950s and 60s. “The marsh girl,” as she’s known, is reviled and shunned by those in the nearby town. In time, Kya is put on trial for murder. Now, there’s a film adapted from the novel by an author with a mysterious past.

    2. Kya’s Childhood
      As with any book-to-screen adaptation, some of the novel’s more detailed story lines must be condensed. The section that gets the most chopping is Kya’s childhood, which takes up several chapters in the book but only about 20 minutes of the movie. This means much of the context for Ma’s (Ahna O’Reilly) exodus from her family, and the abuse by Pa (Garret Dillahunt) that forces all of his children but young Kya (Jojo Regina) to leave, is erased.

      As the book explains, the couple’s marriage was ravaged by the Great Depression, which led to Pa’s gambling addiction and alcoholism. The film doesn’t provide a reason for Pa’s abusive nature, nor does it flesh out the close-knit bond Kya shares with her older brother Jodie (Will Bundon). Kya’s arrest in the murder of Chase Andrews also happens far earlier in the movie, which frames her childhood anecdotes as flashbacks told to her lawyer (David Strathairn) rather than its own segment.
