Life isn't easy for mankind following the Great Flood, and now Eber and his young son, Peleg, have to help an angel named Zephon. Zephon has been sent to earth to recover two missing angels captured by King Nimrod. On their journey to the tower they confront many of these Mesopotamian mechas including Inanna, goddess of war and love, and Nergal, god of the underworld.
Meanwhile, Abdi, a janitor at the Tower of Babel, finds a mess that leads him to a secret ritual and is chosen by the giant robot Marduk to become its pilot or "Heart." The robotic pantheon was created by the tyrannical King Nimrod under the pretense of protecting humanity, but they actually threaten the balance of the world.
Everything comes to a head in an epic battle between Zephon and Abdi inside of Marduk. In the end, Eber and his son help save the missing angels, and Abdi discovers that after a lifetime of taking orders he has the ability to choose for himself.
