Kristen Parker is one of the last surviving children of the parents who killed Freddy Krueger. After being admitted into the psychiatric facility of Westin Hills, she meets Nancy Thompson, herself a survivor. Together, along with the rest of the "Dream Warriors", they face Krueger together using Kristen's ability to bring them together in the same dream. Along with the help of Donald Thompson and Dr. Neil Gordon, Freddy is defeated and finally laid to rest.
Or so they thought.....
A few years later, Kristen's fear of Freddy's return brings him back to life, allowing him to finish what he started. While in the nightmare, Kristen accidentally brings her friend Alice into the dream, allowing Freddy to continue his reign of terror after Kristen's death.
