PlotEdit

A married couple is juxtaposed in the Garden of Eden and in modern New York City. The Garden of Eden humorously depicts Adam George O'Brien and Eve Olive Borden awoken by a Flintstones-like coconut alarm clock and Adam reading the morning news on giant stone tablets. In the modern day, the biblical serpent is replaced by Eve's gossiping neighbor and Eve becomes a sexy flapper and fashion model when Adam is at work.
