Night-time. A man behind the wheel of a car. A desolate road. In voice-over, Shane Francis (David Ngoombujarra) talks about the spirits that are present in the work he does as a field officer for the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody. Flashback: Francis walks into the office. A solicitor (Molly Brumm) seated at her desk, watches Francis cross the floor with a towel in one hand and a towel rack in the other. Francis attempts to tie the bulky towel into a knot by weaving it through the towel rack. He glances to his side. Beside him is a black-and-white photo that depicts a young man (Caine Muir) hanging by a towel tied in a knot. Francis is disturbed by not being able to imitate the technique by which the young man alleged hanged himself.
