Freely based on the story of Genesis, "Children of Eden" is described as a "frank, heartfelt and often humorous examination" of the age-old conflict between parents and children. Adam, Eve, Noah and the "Father" who created them deal with the headstrong, cataclysmic actions of their respective children. The show ultimately delivers a bittersweet but inspiring message: that "the hardest part of love... is letting go."<br />
