Synopsis by Hal Erickson
It has been a dozen years since a mysterious plague killed several children in a tiny Pacific Northwest community. The townsfolk, disgusted that science was unable to find a cure for the plague, still live in the past, refusing to acknowledge the present or the future. Working together, Health Department officer Tom Young (Peter Flemming) and discredited town doctor Malcolm Boussard (Lane Smith) try to figure out the source of the long-ago plague -- and to do this, they must unlock the memory banks of Boussard's near-catatonic daughter Cassie (Rachael Leigh Cook). Directed by comedienne Catherine O'Hara, "Glyphic" first aired on March 20, 1998.
