A writer/photographer team are sent to Africa to cover a mysterious serpent-cult ceremony for LIVE magazine. In the desert, a huge stone snake statue had been unearthed after 4,000 years and an ancient snake Goddess emerges turning all of her followers (descendants of her original followers 4,000 years earlier) to snake people. When she tries to do so with the photographer, he is able to drain her poison glands using chemicals from his photographic developing kit, causing her to lose her powers and disintegrate into dust. Her followers are all then restored to human form.
