The Ghostbusters find themselves confronted with the Sandman, a powerful entity who believes that the world would be a better place if the world was full of sleeping people. No wars, no fighting, no honking cars, only peace and dreams. The Sandman uses his magic dust to put people to sleep and make their dreams come to life. The guys had better find a way to stop him before he puts everyone in the world to to sleep for a five hundred year nap. Can the Ghostbusters defeat the Sandman before they get sleep-dusted themselves?
