Synopsis of the movie Firestarter
For more than a decade, Andy (Zac Efron) and Vicky (Sydney Lemmon) have been on the run, desperate to hide their daughter Charlie (Ryan Kiera Armstrong) from federal agents who want to exploit the possibility. Charlie’s superhuman and create weapons of mass destruction.
From an early age Charlie realized there was something different about himself from the people around him. But instead of feeling privileged with the ability to create and control fire with his mind, Charlie felt like a monster. She has always felt disgusted with the hidden life and unable to express herself.
Living in hiding, Andy taught Charlie how to reduce her powers created by anger or pain. Andy hopes that Charlie can control the powers of pyrokinesis and be able to manipulate them with the decisions charlie really wants, not as a result of a reflex reaction affecting everything around him.
But when Charlie was 11 years old, the fire became increasingly difficult to control. After an incident reveals the location of their family, a mysterious agent (Michael Greyeyes) is deployed to track down the family and arrest Charlie. So can Charlie escape? And will she be able to control her own power and lead a more peaceful life?
