Carolina Moon

Synopsis: In her mid-twenties, Tory Bodeen returns to the small Carolina town of her childhood, where her best friend Hope was murdered in an unsolved assault. Tory is blessed - or maybe cursed - with the ability to see events in the past and present, and although at the time she knew what has happening to Hope, she was unable to prevent it or to see who the assailant was. Her father, a righteous religious fanatic, remains a suspect. As the anniversary of Hopes death approaches, Tory resolves to face her demons with the help of childhood friends - her cousin Wade, Hope's sister Faith, and Hope's brother Cade, who still carries a torch for her. Will friends be enough?

This is where

the Russian plane went down.

Yes. That's what

my instruments are telling me.

We have to retrieve

the nuclear warhead...

...before they send

their rescue force.

Come on already.


The Geiger counter's going crazy.

It's here. I found it.

I found the warhead.

Tor, what is it? What's wrong?

- Are you having a vision?

- Yes.

Somebody's watching us.


I can't tell. It's...


Leave us alone.

It's getting late. I better go.

We have to meet tonight to plan

the attack on enemy headquarters.

Right here, 8:
35 sharp.

I'll bring the lemonade.

No. It's just your brother

and my cousin.

Hey, Hope.

If Mom found out you were swimming

without a grown-up around...

If Mom found out, there'd be one less

Cade Lavelle in the world.

You won't tell my parents,

will you, Wade?

I don't know, coz.

What's it worth to you?

You guys said you were gonna

wait up for me.

"Mommy, I was so scared

in the woods all alone.

What if a snake came and bit me

in my extra-double-giant-sized butt?"

Oh, my God. It's a cottonmouth.

Where is it?

- You guys are such jerks.

- Better a jerk than a dweeb.

Dwight the dweeb,

Dwight the dweeb.

Dwight the dweeb,

Dwight the dweeb.

Dwight the dweeb.

Boys are such boys.

- Don't forget about tonight.

- The woods are full of enemy spies.

We need a password.


Make us ever grateful

for thy mercy, Lord.

For whosoever turneth

against thy commandments...

...shalt thou smite with pain

of the spirit and torment of the flesh.


Blackberries are coming in

so big and ripe.

I might wanna get in

a little canning this week...

...make a nice jelly.

I love that blackberry jelly.

I know I've got some paraffin

here somewhere.

If I could just think

where it's gone to.

Gone to?

I work myself black and blue,

every day of the week, but the Lord's.

And you wonder where the things

I buy for you have gone to.

It's on the top shelf above the stove.

Behind the molasses

and the cornstarch.

And how do you know

where the wax is, Victoria?

Up where you can't see it,

you can't reach it...

...unless the devil showed it to you

in your visions?

- She must've seen me put it there.

- Shut your pie hole.

A year. A whole year

since last canning season...

...and you remember...

...that it's exactly...

...between the

molasses and the cornstarch.

I'm sorry, Daddy.

It just came to me.

I promise I won't do it again.

Open the door, Victoria.

Baby, when the devil's got

a child under his power...

...who's gonna set her free

if her daddy doesn't?


Forty-one, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46...

Hey, Faith, you wanna play jacks?

Hope, you're making me lose count.

- And people say twins think alike.

- Forty-seven, 48.

Hope, where you going?

To meet Tory. Please don't tell.

Cade... wouldn't have any idea where

Hope's got herself to, would you?

She's hiding in my closet.

Some dumb game she's playing.

Oh, well, somebody has a ballet

lesson she needs to be well rested for.

And it's almost 7:30.

Faith? Did you see

the new toothbrush I bought you?

You are the best brother

in the world.

Can I go with you?

Why would you want to?

Cade and Tory sitting in a tree

I hate you.

K- l-S-S-l-N-G

First comes love

Then comes marriage

Then comes the baby

In the baby carriage




It's okay if you can't

remember the password.

Just come out, okay?

- Tory.

- No.


- Go away.

- Run.


In the spring before that summer...

... we used Hope's pocket knife

to cut a narrow slice in our wrists.

Solemnly we mixed our blood.
