Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me is a 1992 psychological horror film directed by David Lynch and written by Lynch and Robert Engels. It serves as a prequel and sequel to the television series Twin Peaks (1990–1991), created by Mark Frost and Lynch, who were also executive producers. The film revolves around the investigation into the murder of Teresa Banks (Pamela Gidley) and the last seven days in the life of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee), a popular high school student in the fictional Washington town of Twin Peaks.


FBI Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole sends agents Chester Desmond and Sam Stanley to investigate the murder of teenage drifter and prostitute Teresa Banks in the town of Deer Meadow, Washington. The pair are informed about their new assignment through a woman named Lil, who wears an artificial blue rose on her lapel. Desmond and Stanley view Teresa's body at a morgue. They notice that a ring is missing from her finger and a small piece of paper with the letter "T" printed on it has been inserted under one of her fingernails. The agents arrange for Teresa's body to be taken to Portland. Later, Desmond finds Teresa's missing ring under a trailer. As he reaches out to it, he is taken by an unseen force.
