In the pilot episode of Twin Peaks, the body of high-school student Laura Palmer is found washed up on the banks of a river outside the titular town. Initially a symbol of young innocence and purity, her troubles are gradually uncovered and the true darkness of the town revealed. This prequel film recounts the last week of her life, along with the murder of a night-shift waitress in the town of Deer Meadow. A necessary piece of the puzzle that deserves to be seen on the big screen before the return of the television series.
