Nancy Thompson lives with an overprotective police officer father, her parents divorced and her mother barely present. She's also been having way too vivid nightmares about a "boogeyman" with claws in a fiery boiler room. After having a dream where her mother is killed, Nancy learns the following morning that her mother has in fact died in her sleep. Soon, Nancy realizes that her boogeyman is all too real. Abstaining from sleep, she tries to find the answer to what or who the man of her nightmares is and how to put an end to it. A re-imagining of Wes Craven's "Nightmare On Elm Street".
