The plot of the film is said to follow the events of the first novel in the book series entitled The Case of the Missing Marquess. In the story, Mrs. Holmes goes missing on Enola's 16th birthday. Young Enola Holmes enlists her older brothers to help find their mom but instead of trying to help they take on the parental responsibilities and try to turn Enola into a proper lady. They attempt to send her to finishing school but she runs away to London to find her missing mom.
