The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled.  So the Lord said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.” But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.

/Genesis Chapter 6/

History repeats itself. Noah once more must decide who will be the chosen ones, who will be given places in the Ark. This time Noah has decided to be more pragmatic and has put a limited number of tickets on sale. However, he is caught off guard by people who have not managed to buy them, by those who blame a flaw in the ticket sales system, by those who appeal to Noah's feelings, begging him to have mercy and by those who threaten to accuse Noah of abusing human rights. If Noah is convinced that the end of the world is really here, why do these accusations bother him anyway? Is the potential savior of our civilization corrupt, or just humanly indecisive?

A philosophical tragicomedy that makes us think about what defines human value today? Who hasthe right to live and who has the right to make these choices? And in the end, as much as we dislike Noah's decisions, would we really want to be in his shoes?
