The following is a synopsis of The Marsh King’s Daughter provided by Lionsgate:

“In the suspenseful thriller The Marsh King’s Daughter, a lady with a mysterious past will venture into the wilderness she abandoned to confront the most deadly man she has ever encountered: her father. In the movie, Helena’s (Daisy Ridley) seemingly normal life conceals a dark and dangerous secret: her estranged father, played by Ben Mendelsohn, is the notorious Marsh King, and he was the one who held her and her mother captive in the wilderness for many years. Helena is forced to face her history as her father makes his daring escape from prison. Helena must find the resolve to face her demons and outmaneuver the guy who taught her everything she knows about surviving in the wild to protect her family from the man who taught her everything she knows about surviving in the wilderness.

The Marsh King’s Daughter is an adaptation of Dionne’s novel, and it weaves a story about hidden truths, surviving, and the complex relationships between families. At first glance, Helena Pelletier’s life may appear ideal: she has a devoted husband, two adoring girls, and a successful business that keeps her busy throughout the day. Nevertheless, she is the product of a terrible kidnapping, a profound secret hidden beneath this facade. As a child, her mother was mercilessly kidnapped by her father and held captive in a secluded cabin in the middle of Michigan’s lonely marshlands. As she was growing up, Helena acquired a profound affinity for the natural environment around her. She even managed to cultivate a complicated fondness for her father, even though he could sometimes be rather violent. When she discovers the extent of his barbarism, her viewpoint undergoes a gloomy shift, and she begins to see him in an entirely different light. Over the course of the previous twenty years, she has dug her painful history so firmly into the ground that not even her husband is aware of the terrifying truth. Helena is aware that the authorities will have difficulty apprehending her father after he staged a daring prison break and left two guards dead in his trail before escaping into the inhospitable marsh. Despite this, Helena believes that they will eventually be successful in their pursuit of her father. She realizes that she is the only person her father has ever trained. As a result, she is the only one with the abilities necessary to track down the mysterious survivalist known as the Marsh King.
