Year One is the story of Zed (Jack Black), a Neanderthal hunter-gatherer who is banished from his tribe and exiled for eating forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.  He and his sardonic buddy Oh (Michael Cera) leave their village and begin an epic journey through history.  On their travels, they meet Cain (David Cross) and Abel (Paul Rudd) on a fateful day, stop Abraham (Hank Azaria) from killing Isaac, become slaves and find themselves in the city of Sodom where their tribe is now enslaved.  Zed and Oh are determined to rescue the women they love, Maya (June Diane Raphael) and Eema (Juno Temple).  Standing in their way is Sodom’s high priest and the omnipresent Cain..  Along the way, Zed debunks commonly held beliefs and replaces them with his own delusions of grandeur.
