Synopsis

Two angels, God's messengers, who, however, look more like astronauts, visit Lot and using their transmitters, warn him about the destruction of the city of Sodoma (Sodom) and tell him to take his family and leave as he is the only rightful person in the town. Although Lot constantly criticizes and warns his fellows, he still feels to be one of them and struggles to save them. Together with his wife he is trying to think of at least ten rightful people from the city, but they fail and find no one. Lot sets off to warn people, but no one takes him seriously. Thus, Lot asks his wife to prepare the family's removal to the city of Ségor. Together with the heavenly messengers they leave the city walls. When Lot turns around to get the last view of his home and sees the city of Sodoma on fire, he starts running back...
