Story: Based on the bestselling book series by Daniel Handler, the "Snicket" saga revolves around a pint-sized trio of orphans named Sunny, Klaus and Violet who find themselves fobbed off on a series of odd people including a paranoid aunt and a reptile-rearing uncle. The recurring bad guy is a distant family relative named Count Olaf, a very bad actor who initially takes in the kids but clearly is trying to separate them from a family inheritance.
