An animated cartoon about the Creation myth reviewed and corrected by two women. God the magician has decided to create a paradise: Switzerland. He covers it with trees and cows, until Adam is born. After exploring his paradise, Adam creates Eve from one of his ribs. Man is shown as an erect penis, woman by a limbless trunk.

"Swiss Graffiti is the ideal pick-me-up for disheartened feminists. Jacqueline Veuve and Monique Renault animate the story of Adam and Eve with a few new twists that indicate feminine hands at work here witty, clever seven minutes. The Ladies never looked like this." — Melbourne Film Festival
