Enola Holmes (Millie Bobby Brown) is the youngest sibling in the famous Holmes family. She is a free-wheeling, strong-willed, and boundary-pushing young woman. She is extremely intelligent, observant, and insightful, and she defies the social norms for women of the time. Her mother, Eudoria (Helena Bonham Carter), has taught her everything from chess to jujitsu. Her mother also made her read every book in Ferndell Hall, their home, and was a big fan of word games.
On the day of her sixteenth birthday, Enola awakens to find her mother has disappeared, leaving only some birthday gifts. Enola meets her brothers, Mycroft (Sam Claflin) and Sherlock, but they fail to recognize her at first, not having seen her in many years. Sherlock finds her to be an intelligent girl, whereas Mycroft finds her troublesome; as her legal guardian, Mycroft intends to send her away to a finishing school run by the stern Miss Harrison (Fiona Shaw). Enola finds clues and money left by her mother and escapes, disguised as a boy. On the train, she finds the young Viscount Tewkesbury (Louis Partridge) hidden in a travel bag. She thinks he is a fool but warns him that a man in a brown bowler hat (named Linthorn) is on the train, searching for him. To escape, Enola and Tewkesbury jump off the train together and flee to London, where they part ways. Disguised as a proper Victorian lady, she continues to trace her mother and leaves cryptic messages in the newspaper personal advertisements for Eudoria to find. As Enola continues to search for her mother, Linthorn (Burn Gorman) tries to kill her, but she manages to set off explosives and escape. She decides that instead of continuing to search for her mother, she must first find Tewkesbury again to save him, because he can't defend himself. Mycroft has employed Inspector Lestrade (Adeel Akhtar) of Scotland Yard to track Enola down. Meanwhile, Enola warns Tewkesbury and helps him escape but is caught by Lestrade, and Mycroft imprisons her in Miss Harrison's finishing school. Sherlock visits her and admits he is impressed by her detective work. Tewkesbury sneaks into the school hidden in a wicker basket, and they escape together, stealing Miss Harrison's motor car. They reach a fork in the road and, rather than returning to London, Enola decides they must go to Tewkesbury's home and face his uncle, who she has deduced was trying to kill him. The house is seemingly deserted, and Linthorn attempts to shoot them, but they manage to overcome him. Tewkesbury's grandmother is revealed as the real villain; she had his father killed and attempted to kill Tewkesbury, not wanting him to take his father's place in the House of Lords and vote for the Reform Bill, which he does. Sherlock arrives at Scotland Yard, and Lestrade asks him two questions: firstly how he managed to solve the case, and secondly how his sister solved it first.
