Thanks to a turtle, Adam and Eve find a book. This three-dimensional animation starts as an innocent comedy, but turns grim, when paradise is taken over spectacularly.
A turtle causes Adam and Eve - getting on in years now - to find a book in their paradise. By tearing the blank pages from the book, they unchain forces that initially they can play with, but that soon outgrow them. The three-dimensional animated film starts as an innocent comedy, but when paradise is taken over in spectacular fashion, it gets an increasingly ominous quality.
