Emergence is the story of six women and a young girl who go on an overnight cave trip into Dragons Den, a Virginia cave full of delicate formations, sinuous unerground passages, and a 100-foot waterfal to a lower-level stream passage. Danielle and Nacole are the trip leaders. Accompanying them are Sidney, who is also an experienced caver, three who are going caving for the first time. Gabby, photographer; Lynne, mother of the three; Melissa, nature lover, and finallyKate, Danielle's daughter, a veteran caver eight years old. After they drop the waterfal pit, three young men enter the cave and accidentally cause a rockslide that traps the women in the lower level of the cave. This fast-moving story is about their struggle to escape the cave and, in the process, to find themselves.
