Recorded for Kalkaringi Community Education Centre (primary and middle school) Gurindji program organised by DAC (Diwurruwurru-jaru Aboriginal Corporation). A boy shares a humpy with his granny. She doesn't let him sleep properly, telling him to move over all the time and leave more room for her. The same thing happens night after night. One day he decides to kill her.
