[video] Unnatural History - The Victor Belongs to the Spoils

"An action packed blend of mystery and adventure, Unnatural History centers on the exploits of Henry Griffin — an exceptional teenager with extraordinary skills he learned while living with his anthropologist parents in some of the most exotic places on the planet. He’s well-trained in martial arts, an expert survivalist; he can climb and rappel, track quarry and throw a javelin. He has the wisdom of a Buddhist monk, the courage of a lion, and the discipline of . . . a teenager. When Henry’s parents decide it’s time for him to settle down and lead a normal life, they send him off to Washington D.C. to live with his cousin Jasper and Uncle Bryan, who happens to be the principal of James Smithson High School. Henry explores the secrets of Smithson High and the adjacent National Museum Complex, and soon he is plunged into a whole new world of mystery and intrigue. He’ll need all of his skills, as well as the help of his cousin Jasper and friend Maggie, to survive his most challenging adventure to date — conquering the urban jungle." -- iTunes Store
