Andy and Vicky participated in some medical experiments in college. It is 9 years later and their 9-year-old daughter, Charlene "Charlie" McGee, can start fire with her mind. The government wants to study her even if it kills her.
Even though Firestarter was never my favorite King novel, it did turn out to be one of the better filmed movies. The cast is impressive, the story is interesting and it never gets dull. Overall, a superb effort.
