Comments: A father and daughter are being chased by feds. Flashback a decade and the father meets the future mother where an experimental drug is injected in them, and a few others. The drug gives the future couple special powers. Their daughter has the particularly stong talent of starting fires with her mind.
Drew Barrymore does a very good job for an eight-year-old. The story and plot move along well. The climatic scene is impressive. This is based on a Stephen King novel. Filmed in Wilmington, North Carolina.
