Lenny and Saline’s parents brought them to Southern California to escape the nightmares. But after their parents die in a horrible car accident, their adoption by longtime family friend Busek proves nightmarish in its own right. Busek is abusive to his son, Dustin, and does very little to hold the young family together. The trio of kids become friends and grow up together, though as teens the emotional aftermath of Saline and Lenny’s parents’ death lingers and eventually catapults Lenny and Saline on individual journeys back to their old town in Washington. But is it childhood memories that draw them there or something that nightmares are made of? Meanwhile, Dustin stays back in Southern California and meets a group of youth who stumble upon the cities’ plan to replace the library with a jail. In the process of this discovery they learn of one of the biggest secrets society has ever kept, a secret waiting for them underground, in blackness.
