The MTI website states:

Freely based on the story of Genesis, CHILDREN OF EDEN is 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."

The music, by Schwartz, is really beautiful, and while the Bible stories from the first nine chapters of Genesis are romanticized in this version, it has an entertaining and touching message.
