Before Lakebottom was Lakebottom there was ï¿½ a lake! The wedding of the century is being planned by Priscilla Tuttle and nothing will stop her from devising the perfect lakeside ceremony attended by all of Columbusï¿½ elite. But there are problems in Wildwood Park. The brideï¿½s mother is proving to be the embodiment of evil, the bridesmaids come down with malaria and the city begins to drain the lake. But as the water level lowers, the anxiety rises: Thereï¿½s a secret at the bottom of that lake. And the Tuttle family will do anything to keep it hidden. Topher Payneï¿½s hilarious prequel to his 2011 hit ("Lakebottom Proper"), "Lakebottom Prime" turns the clock back to the days when brass bands played on an island bandstand, lovers paddled canoes around the lake and families picnicked on the shore.
