In 1923 a policeman, Constable McLeay and a police boy came to the Dampier Peninsula WA to arrest a Bardi man, John Boxer, who had been accused of stealing from white settlers. They took him in a dinghy across rough tidal waters to an island in search of the stolen property. The boat got taken under and the policeman drowned in a whirlpool. John Boxer recorded his story in Bardi in 1970 and this archival recording is used as the basis for a subtitled animation of the story.
