    • Synopsis
    • Australia, long, long ago...tribal times. Ten men go out onto the swamp to collect the eggs of 'gumang', the magpie goose. Dayindi, a young warrior (played by Jamie Gulpilil, son of the great Aboriginal actor David Gulpilil) covets the youngest wife of his older brother. To teach him the proper way, he is told a cautionary story from the mythical past - a wild and comic tale of illicit love, kidnapping, sorcery, bungling mayhem and revenge gone wrong.
