The burning desire to get away from it all will soon become the desperate need to escape…
Randy and Nicole Henderson would both admit their marriage has been anything but a bed of roses. Randy is obsessive-compulsive and Nicole has problems with fidelity, but until now, they’ve never been able to go their own separate ways.
Wanting to give their three daughters a final quiet family weekend before they file for divorce, The Hendersons set out for their vacation home on the shores of an idyllic lake in the Appalachian Mountains. However, the weekend is anything but peaceful.
Their oldest daughter winds up in the emergency room, then their middle daughter has a strange nightmare. The final straw comes when Nicole has her own nightmare and wakes to find evidence the youngest daughter has been roaming in the forest during the night, even though there is no plausible explanation for how she got outside.
Upon returning home, it dawns on Randy that strange things have been happening at the cabin since he began visiting there with his parents and brother as a child. The latest weekend, bad as it was, only hints at the climax that will reveal why the place is called Grey Lake.
