In the small town of Chamberlain, Maine, a high-school girl named Carrie White has been gifted with powerful telekinetic abilities. A social outcast in school, Carrie deals with malicious bullying from her fellow classmates for differences that she cannot change. Along with that, Carrie must face her abusive mother at home, a devout Christian woman who forces her religious practices onto her daughter. However one day, things seem to be turning up for Carrie when a spontaneous act of kindness is displayed upon her by concerned classmates Sue Snell and her boyfriend Tommy Ross. The path to acceptance seems to be laid out right in front of Carrie, but when bullies Chris Hargensen and Billy Nolan take the harassment too far one night, Carrie White is pushed beyond her limits and is forced to take action herself. What ensues culminates into a night that the entire town of Chamberlain will never forget.
