In the TV movie Little Girl’s Secret, a family moves to a house in the country that used to be a church. “There’s something strange about this place,” says teenager Molly (Sophie Nélisse). “I feel like something’s watching us,” the intuitive teen tells her mom. And she’s right. Molly’s step-sister Heather has developed a bond with the ghost of a young girl named Helen who haunts the house and the family.
