Set in Fresno, California on April 12, 2014, Unfriended is told through a laptop screencast of high school student Blaire Lily (Shelley Hennig), one year after her childhood friend Laura Barns committed suicide. Laura was a victim of online abuse after a YouTubevideo depicted her intoxicated and passed out, covered in her own feces. Blaire briefly watches a recording of the suicide and the YouTube video before she is contacted over Skype by her boyfriend Mitch (Moses Jacob Storm). The couple promise to lose their virginity to each other at prom. They’re later joined by three of their friends: Jess Felton (Renee Olstead), Ken Smith (Jacob Wysocki), and Adam Sewell (Will Peltz), as well as a faceless account named “billie227”, who claims to be Laura.
