Plot Summary

Two children and their single mother, moved to a farm in Summerville, Oklahoma, inherited from their late grandfather, after they evicted from their home.

When the town experiences a series of unexplainable earthquakes, the two children discover their family’s link to the original Ghostbusters.

It has become something of a myth as many have long since forgotten the events of the “Manhattan Crossrip of 1984”, and the secret legacy that their grandfather left behind.
