A couple, Caleb (Trevor Wright) and Jessica (Agnes Bruckner) and their friend Tanner (Arjay Smith) are driving up to their new home and stumble upon a motel called Meadow View Inn.

There are three men; two with bags over their heads and the visible manager, who are now trying to kill these people and make snuff videos of it to sell to associates interested.
