(continued from previous post)...Alison, who is married to John (a carpenter), with Nicholas, a young student. Things get complicated because Absalom, another man, is also obsessed with Alison and is trying to "woo" her as well. Everything goes nuts when Nicholas convinces John that a flood is coming, just like the one in Genesis, and John hides in large tubs suspended from the ceiling.
