Because of his parents wealth and power, teenager Grant has gotten away with murder. Call it afluenza, but Grant's guilt and disgust with himself pushes him to make a drastic plan for self-punishment. His quest for justice for the people he killed leads him to the Appalachian trail and a devastating cave in. Now Grant has to help a small group of city kids survive, because it appears that something or someone is down in the caves with them. The Unfortunates also gets a million bonus cool points because it's set here in Richmond, Virginia!
