Dramatization of the biblical story of Noah and the flood. Noah, his wife and sons are among the few to escape the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. An outcast in his new village, Noah is ridiculed when he builds a great ark at the height of a long drought. But when animals begin to arrive "two by two" and the drought turns to a great flood, the villagers no longer laugh. The ark is attacked by villagers on the ground and pirates and monsters at sea. The ship finally lands at its final destination on top of Mt. Ararat, where the animals are set free and human history begins anew.
