Carrie White is a lonely, withdrawn high-school student, ridiculed by her classmates and brought up almost in isolation by her fanatically religious mother. When Carrie experiences her first period in the gym shower, she is ruthlessly teased and humiliated by her fellow pupils, who are in turn severely punished by their teacher. Determined to seek revenge, the students hatch a plot against Carrie, which turns horribly wrong when Carrie's strange telekinetic powers are unleashed during the school prom.
