On the surface, Charlie McGee is just a happy, ordinary little eight-year-old - until someone just happens to anger her or threaten her family. Then Charlie changes: her deadly powers take over and with just a glance she can cause fires - incredible fires. And when she reaches adolescence and her powers mature she will become an awesome destructive force, capable of blowing the planet in two. It is a power she doesn't want, inherited from her parents, a power difficult to control and a power sought by a sinister government agency that wants to find her, control her and destroy her. Drew Barrymore, one of the young stars of 'E.T.' plays the firestarter in Dino de Laurentiis's film of Stephen King's frightening best-seller.
