An avenging creator has stricken the male sex from the face of the earth. In this world without men, two whimsical old ladies bemoan their boring, unromantic universe. But the lovely granddaughter of one domineering matriarch, in her search through the forest for a ground-hog, has unearthed the last surviving man, hidden away in a cave in suspended animation. The dilemma of the only man in a woman's world creates a suspenseful comedy, tinged with a bit of poignancy, and we are left with a charming, delightful echo of another place and time.
