A future Earth. There are only few people left. They are very religious and worshiping Mother Earth. The priestesses take care to fertilize the earth where and whenever needed. One of the submissive men is doubting the stories about this Mother Earth. A Mother Earth with her eyes-ears, or "teevee tranceivers" as the priestesses call them. His wife has left him, he becomes angry and all he wants, is to go against this Mother Earth.
