Bless the Child

Synopsis: Omens and concepts of good vs. evil have no place in Maggie O'Connor's well-ordered, practical universe. Her life revolves around her job as a nurse at a busy New York hospital, until one rainy night, her sister Jenna abandons her newborn, autistic daughter at her home. Maggie takes the baby in, and she becomes the daughter she never had. Six years later Jenna suddenly re-appears with a mysterious new husband, Eric, and abducts Cody. Despite the fact that Maggie has no legal rights to Cody, FBI agent John Travis, an expert in ritual homicide and occult-related crime, takes up her cause when he realizes that Cody shares the same birth date as several other recently missing children. The little girl, it soon becomes clear, is more than simply "special." She manifests extraordinary powers that the forces of evil have waited centuries to control, and her abduction sparks a clash between the soldiers of good and evil that can only be resolved, in the end, by the strength of one small child

[Woman]|Again, our guest today, Eric Stark.

You probably remember him as Little|Luke, the child star of Family Days.

Today he's here to talk about|his work as founder of The New Dawn,

one of the fastest-growing|self-help organizations in America.

Honey, you have|five minutes.

- Then you have to go get dressed.|- addict by 15.

There were even rumors at one point|that you had died from an overdose.


But now you're helping|these runaway kids.

You're helping the abused kids.|You're getting them off the streets.

You're getting them off drugs|and into your rehab centers.

- What's your secret?|- [Turns Down]

These kids are|tortured with morality.

They feel terribly guilty|and they want to forget.

So what we try to do at New Dawn...

is teach these kids to look|inside themselves--

[TV Continues, Indistinct]


[Mouse Squeaks]

[Faint Hissing, Whispering]

[Whispering Continues]

[ Gasps ]

[ Voice Whispers, Indistinct]

[ Chattering ]

That's your guy.

- I'm looking for Detective Bugatti.|- Yeah, that's me.

- Agent Travis?|- How you doing?

Welcome to Brooklyn. I'll get you up|to speed on all this stuff later.

But... maybe it would be|a good idea...

if you try to keep|a low profile out here today.

- Why is that?|- Well, some of the guys,

they're wound up pretty|tight about this case.

They should be.

This is the fifth child|and from what I heard,

you still don't have any suspects.

That's true, but|some of the detectives,

they get a little territorial|when the bureau steps in.

That would include you?

Hey, I don't give a f*ck|if we gotta call in...

the French Foreign Legion if that's|what it takes to stop this guy.

- Mind if I take a look at the body?|- Yeah, no, go ahead.

- Hi, Cody.|- Hi.

Those are very pretty.|Who are they?
