|Review Summary and Plot Commentary about Firestarter|
|Andy McGee met his future wife Vicky while they were earning money by participating in an experiment in which they were given a dose of a chemical called LOT-6. Andy and Vicky went on to get married and they now have a 9-year-old daughter named Charlene "Charlie" McGee, who has the ability to start fires at will, a result of the experiment that Andy and Vicky participated in. The experiment also gave Andy the ability to control things and people with his mind. A secret government department known as "The Shop" did the experiment, and now the Shop has been pursuing Andy and Charlie, even killing Vicky in order to get her out of the way. The organization wants to study them and then kill them. They have sent a sniper named John Rainbird to find Andy and Charlie. What everyone has underestimated is that Andy and Charlie are willing to do whatever it takes to protect each other.
