The Department of Scientific Intelligence (aka “The Shop”) never anticipated that two participants in their research program would marry and have a child. Charlie McGee (Drew Barrymore) inherited pyrokinetic powers from her parents, Andy (David Keith) and Vicky (Heather Locklear) who had been given a low-grade hallucinogen called “Lot Six” while at college. Now the government, headed by DSI administrator Captain 'Cap' Hollister (Martin Sheen), is trying to capture young Charlie and harness her powerful firestarting skills as a weapon. After the murder of his wife, Andy McGee flees with his daughter and is pursued by hired assassin, John Rainbird (George C. Scott). Andy and Charlie find temporary shelter with an eldery couple, Irv (Art Carney) and Norma Manders (Louise Fletcher) but The Shop finds more than it bargained for when they discover them.
