A dark force is born from the imaginations of two young brothers, casting a shadow over Nod, the mercurial land of dreams. When the malevolent entity abducts the Sandman, and then snatches its own creators from their cozy beds in an Iowa farmhouse, the boys’ cynical father must rescue his sons and save the Sandman before the sleep-deprived citizens of the world burn everything to the ground.
