One day, Paulo, the one in charge of the family, goes out and looks for sustenance for his children. Along the way, he finds a mysterious cave in which he decides to explore. A shiny object glistens on the ground, attracting Paulo to it. A tablet, with ancient writings not used anymore; luckily this language was the one he studied as a child. Deciphering it, he figures out it is a prophecy from the gods that explains a flood is comming soon.
Struggling to comprehend, Paulo makes his way back home. Explaining what he found out, his wife brings up an old myth about floods coming and wiping out entire species. Still not knowing what to believe, he stays awake thinking about the possibilities.
A few hours later, he falls asleep from being sleep deprived. He awakes frantically looking around him, seeing only water everywhere, before getting knocked down by the ground rocking. Suddenly, he hears yelling from one of the compartments. His wife and children, pleading for him to get inside; Paulo begins to run towards them. A giant wave forms itself on the side of the boat, and knocks him unconscious.
Waking up Paulo realizes that he is back in his home. He begins to accept the fact that the myth is true, and this time a flood is coming. He puts his family to work on building a boat that can survive for as long as possible, gathering food and animals to bring along with them after the flood, seeds in order to plant after and anything else they would need.Paulo and his family push through day and night to get it done.
The morning of the last day arrives, just as they are rounding up the last of the animals up the ramp onto the boat. They notice an absurd amount of storm clouds rolling in, and the ocean rising above sea level. They hurry onto the boat, and just like that, they are lifted on the water as if they had already been floating. The storm became stronger and stronger as the time went on. Almost losing some animals, they head inside and wait.
A couple hours later the ship floats smoothly across the waves. Paulo feels this and goes to check outside, and finds a clear sky and sunshine waiting for him. They decide to send off a dove in order to try to find land, and it doesn't come back. There is a top of a mountain sticking up above the water, and they decide to land there. They find the dove perched on a tree, next to a nicely placed temple where they find a statue which blesses them for surviving.
