Plot Synopsis

This reality series follows Verlin Short, who heads an Appalachian family with deep roots in the serpent-handling religion. It's been his family's religion for generations. Verlin attends serpent-handling churches, disappears into the mountains for snake hunts, and keeps 40+ rattlesnakes and copperheads for use in religious services. Together, Verlin and his wife, Reva, are raising two daughters -- 16-year-old Denishea and 13-year-old Peetie -- and 8-year-old twin boys, Jeremiah and Mackenzie, as they struggle to escape the grinding poverty of eastern Kentucky mountain life while still remaining true to their roots.
