Isaac Green and two of his friends want to skateboard down a five-mile-long irrigation ditch called "The Snake." The Snake has no water in it in during the months of November and December. If they can go down without "getting bitten," they will earn the right to wear a coiled snake patch on their jackets. However, a high school bully, Cliff, tries to stop them. The friends devise a plan and then have to put it into action.
