Johnny tags along with Sarah on a visit to a Cleaves Mills retirement community where Sarah's father has recently moved to. While at the retirement community, Johnny has a disturbing vision which makes him suspect something strange is going on there. He finds that the residents are dying at an unusually high rate, and that there are whispers among the old folks about a Shadow Man who has been creeping around the hallways in the middle of the night and snatching people's souls. Johnny must find out what this Shadow Man truly is before it can claim any more victims, including Sarah's father's. Also, Sarah worries that her father will die before they can settle their differences, and JJ connects with his grandpa in a profound way.
