It’s the summer of 1982 and in Corona, California four boys find themselves doing what all boys normally do during a school break; exploring, playing ball and collecting bottles from a construction site in order to cash them in for money. Steve, Jason, Cory and Ricky have lived on the same street for years and have played there, carefree ever since. But when a serial killer invades their small city they find themselves caught up in a series of grizzly murders that brings them face to face with a menace that the authorities have named: the Sesame Street Killer.

The oldest, Steve, reads the others the newspaper articles depicting the killings and after a second girl goes missing they find themselves exploring a massive California pepper tree and stumble upon a lost dog that proves to be more than it seems. Its beautiful, golden eyes seem to see more than the boys themselves can.

Steve comes from a broken home; his father has left years ago and he now suffers abuse at the hands of a sadistic older brother while trying to prevent the same abuse form happening to his younger sister.

Jason, the rational one of the four, must look into his heart to keep his friends on the right path, the path that leads into their futures.

Cory is the wild one, the mischief maker, and wherever he goes, trouble follows. He chooses to fight older kids, argues with adults and curses constantly. He will put the other boy’s lives on the line and will have to help correct the wrongs he’s done. But the one challenge he will need to overcome the most will be himself.

Ricky, the youngest, has been sleeping badly. For weeks he’s had nightmares that he calls the Dark Dreams, dreams of popping bubbles and screaming voices that foreshadow future events. But he is put to the ultimate test when he realizes that his darkest dream is yet to come.

Frisbee will take you back to your childhood, to a time when it was cool to wear surfer shorts and Vans slip-ons. It will take you back to the convenience store where you played your first games of Asteroids and Pac-Man. But worst of all it will take you to a place of extreme evil, a place that the Sesame Street Killer calls: the Shelter.
