Fred and Bessie grow up almost as brother and sister on neighboring orchards. As was expected of them they marry and have a family but as soon as they able to they escape the relentless monotony of farm life and purchase a rundown motel. Through hard work they turn it into a successful business and their dreams are about to come true. George and Edith are a predatory young couple out to take what they feel the world owes them, and now they set their sights on new victims. By the time George and Edith have had their fun, Fred and Bessie will have lost their livelihoods, their possessions … and their lives. But George’s callous greed has created a new set of problems: Jimmy and Lucy will stop at nothing to avenge the destruction of their parents. As they move closer to their revenge, George and Edith worry that secrets they’d rather keep buried will surface. But when George focuses on the troublesome siblings his attempts to silence them fails. His failures and antics do not go unnoticed by George’s corrupt business associates and now the predator becomes the prey. Edith is now the one seeking revenge—but can she avenge her murdered husband and regain her own self-respect before her enemies exact their own revenge?
