Part I is about a scientific expedition from a museum to the Kimberley, Western Australia, to find the sites of the first human occupation of Australia. The expeditioners undertake archaeological excavations and explore along the ancient limestone reef forming the Napier Range. Their adventure reaches a climax as the chief scientist leading the expedition and his former son-in-law, a sculptor, struggle for possession of a chance find in a deep cave. The expeditioners are seemingly drowned in a sudden flood.

Part II is another expedition, on two levels, both starting in the sea. One level tells of an old aboriginal couple grieving for their lost children. They set off on a journey across their country to look for them, eventually arriving at a waterhole.

The other level tells the story of human evolution through the activity of a group of characters who gradually reveal themselves to be the same group from Part I. After a long journey they too eventually arrive at a waterhole. There are also two spirits, a boy and a girl, who interact with both levels throughout these journeys. Events at the waterhole bring the two levels back together in a dramatic conclusion.
