  • Notes

    An adaptation of the author's novel of the same name.

  • Synopsis

    Eily Doolin is a ten-year-old innocent who believes what she's told. In the course of a year, she has close encounters with various 'devils', some good, some not so good and one really evil one who steals her Pearl of Great Price. Nothing will ever be the same again. Following Father Breen's thumping instructions to 'cast him into eternal flames forever', she does precisely that. And then goes home for dinner.
