Sissy Spacek stars as a shy teenager who is the butt of practical jokes at her small-town high school. After her class mates taunt her about her horrified reaction to her totally unexpected first period, one of them takes pity on her and gets the class hunk to invite Carrie to the senior prom. Meanwhile, Carrie’s biggest bully is not as forgiving, and plans a trick to embarrass her in front of the whole school.
