Barry Pennimen hangs out with the wrong crowd. He's lonely enough to follow through on the pranks they set up for him. When he finally decides to go straight, both sides are out to get him . The administration doesn't believe him, and his former buddies are out to kill him. He doesn't take his dad's option to transfer to a private school on the west coast. He's drawn to the hidden cave where Snowy Cobb has led him, they have found a long buried town for pygmies.
