Pastor Jamie Coots, his son Little Cody, their best friend Big Cody and Pastor Andrew Hamblin go snake hunting in the swamps of Caddo Lake, La. During the hunt, Pastor Andrew picks up a cottonmouth viper with his tongs — but accidentally swings it into Little Cody, who is then bitten twice by the deadly snake. Even though he could be dead within hours, he refuses to go to the hospital, and insists instead that they all return to the cabin to pray.
