Carrie White, a shy, unpopular 16-year-old girl, experiences her first period as she showers with her female classmates after high school gym class. Unaware of what is happening, she panics and screams for help. The other girls, led by the arrogant, popular Christine "Chris" Hargensen, begin pelting her with tampons, laughing and chanting "Plug it up! Plug it up!". Miss Collins, the gym teacher, intervenes and slaps Carrie, telling her get up and tend to herself. A light bulb breaks as Carrie is in hysterics. Miss Collins then realizes that this is Carrie's first period and helps her.
