In Unintended, meet Lea, an adventurous, free spirited thirteen-year-old. Her life changes dramatically on the day the family moves away, and before their departure, in a tragic misstep, Lea is goaded into a fight with fifteen-year-old Bill. Acting out of frustration, she gets ahold of the gun he has taken from his father. She accidentally fires a shot in his direction causing Bill to fall into a deep shaft. She's forced to leave and is haunted for years by the memory.
