An uneasy stillness blankets the shores of Shenandoah Mountain Lake... Residents of the sleepy town are trying to pick up the pieces in the aftermath of a horrific nightmare. A serial killer has been captured, but not before he succeeded in murdering seven innocent women. The town is struggling to recover, but Pirates South, the popular theme park, is now nothing but rusting skeletons, the sheriff is dead, and the county sheriff's department no longer exists. Despite the lingering sense of despair, Salem Matthews IV is feeling optimistic... The retired U.S. Army Special Forces officer is pleased a psychotic killer is behind bars, business is improving for his general store and campground, and the ridiculous eyesore of a theme park will soon no longer mar the lake's western shore. He's sure the worst is behind them. A mysterious corporation has set its sights set on Salem's small town... Salem and his wife, Krista, are approached by Permanent Vacation, Incorporated about buying their campground for an upscale marina village. Salem and Krista immediately turn down the offer, and are surprised when the company's representative doesn't press the issue. It quickly becomes clear, however, that Permanent Vacations isn't about to let things go so easily. Salem is haunted by the representative's final words, and wonders if he's made the biggest mistake of his life... "I hope you'll change your mind, Mr. Matthews. One way or another, we always get what we want."
