Sony Pictures have released the official trailer for the upcoming film adaptation of the Delia Owens novel Where The Crawdads Sings.
The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
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.

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.
