Clementine follows a habitual criminal who digs into the mystery of her origins after she becomes the target of a group of zealots who fear she possesses latent supernatural abilities that she will one day harness for either profound good or monstrous evil. The Manchurian Candidate's Dean Georgaris will write while Mark Gordon, Nicholas Pepper and Ilene Staple will executive-produce.
