Sunny, Klaus and Violet Baudelaire, three orphans who lost their parents in a horrible fire, are once again trying to escape the hands of Count Olaf. They walk into the “Last Chance” general store, where they learn their only way out is through the V.F.D. Everyone in V.F.D believes that “no news is good news” so no one knows the secret they are hiding. At the hospital, they are sent to work in the library of Records, where they soon learn there is a file all about them. They must retrieve the file and clear their name before it’s too late.
