Teens attending a summer camp for weight loss are witnesses to the grisly murder of one of their senior counselors. When they learn that the camp director is either knowingly or unknowingly covering up the truth about what really happened, they decide to launch their own investigation. They draw up a list of suspects and search for evidence. Just when it seems like they might get some answers, another murder takes place. Now they’ll have to reevaluate everything. Will they be able to unmask the homicidal maniac before they kill again? A fun murder mystery for those who appreciate just a touch of horror with a denouement in the tradition of Scooby Doo.
