Clip description

As the rest of the community is in mourning for the young man who hanged himself, Tony (Aaron Pedersen) has been watching television at the schoolteacher’s house. He is having an affair with Kate, wife of the teacher Les (Lewis Fitz-Gerald). In the hospital, Ray Larkin (Bryan Brown) asks his deputy Billy (Lafe Charlton), who has two spear wounds in his leg, what he will say to the internal inquiry in Alice Springs.
