NOTICE: While generally acceptable for the over 14 crowd, there may be some sensitive topics now and then.
16-year-old Henrietta “Henry” Coles discovers she has the ability to mentally move objects as well as teleport but has no control over her destination.
The first time she realizes this, she is in a truck with her high school’s basketball captain and star, Clay Boone, who tries to rape her. She has a seizure and teleports, in the course of which she inadvertently crushes him with her inherent telekinesis and teleports for the first time, leaving him a paraplegic.
The show goes on to explore Henry’s need to reconcile what her assaulter tried to do with the consequence, and her feelings about discovering she can teleport and psionically move objects from a distance, which are triggered by her feelings of fear regarding the assault.
