Daren Aronofsky's bold, personal take on the story of Noah. Noah is chosen by the Creator for the difficult task of building an Ark to fill with pairs of each animal when he punishes mankind with a deluge for becoming too sinful. Noah, his wife Naameh and sons Shem, Ham and Japheth are assisted by the Watchers, giant six-armed stone creatures. Noah's nemesis is Tubal-cain, a decendent of Cain who believes that the Creator has abandoned mankind and is determined to take the Ark with his band of armed and blood-thristy soliders.
