The parents of 12-year-old D.J. go away for the weekend, leaving him in the care of his negligent babysitter Zee. D.J. has been spying on his elderly neighbor Mr. Nebbercracker, who scares away children and confiscates their belongings that land in his front yard. After D.J.’s best friend Chowder loses his basketball on Nebbercracker’s lawn, D.J. is caught attempting to retrieve it, but the enraged Nebbercracker suffers a heart attack and is taken away by an ambulance. That night, D.J. gets phone calls from the house with no one there and eavesdrops on Zee’s boyfriend Bones, who tells her about losing his kite on Nebbercracker’s lawn when he was ten and that Nebbercracker supposedly ate his wife.
