Set on the Upper Sepik River in New Guinea, this film records the day-to-day experiences of Patrol Officer, Kiap Barry Downes, as he investigates a murder. As well as being a record of the role of the patrol administration and the rugged conditions under which these men operated, Along the Sepik offers insights into some tribal communities' cultures and the impact of western law on the local people.
