Marrimarrigun is the story of two young men hunting in Marrar county, who got ripped from the land by the notoriously ferocious and fast tides. Stranded on the island, the boys are saved and protected by Marrimarri, the giant spirit man and his daughters. As their family mourns them, the boys are put through Law by Marrimarri and marry his daughters before being taken on a spiritual journey back to the mainland. The spirits of the two boys can be seen in the Laja and Man-gala time, walking along the beach spearing.
