'I told them to go into the scrub again and disperse the tribe.' In Queensland last century, 'disperse' meant 'slaughter.' Terrified at seeing her companions murdered, Kohawa jumped from the cliff called The Leap, clutching her baby.

Tom Dorahy returns with his memories of the crimes of the respected community leaders. His attempts to prove guilt are not even welcomed by the surviving victims. In taking the high moral ground, Dorahy seems determined to take the innocent over The Leap again.
