Season 1 Episode 6 (of 10)

Cast: Claire Goose, Beatie Edney, Matt Bardock,

Jane (Claire Goose), Judith (Beatie Edney) and Beth (Grace Hogg-Robinson) wake to the news that a cargo ship has washed up ashore – and that locals are pilfering the goods.

Jane views this as theft, but Judith, Mick (Ivan Kaye) and Beth believe that this bounty belongs to the community by ancient law and tradition. Detective Sergeant Davey (Matt Bardock) has a hard time keeping order.

In the midst of this, a man, Ian Igby (Charles Babalola), is found dead in one of the containers, apparently looting jewellery. His girlfriend Abby (Florence Hall) is devastated but her father, Grantham (David Westhead) is not surprised. Ian, an ex-con, was a bad lot in his opinion.

Jane wants to find answers for Abby. Was Ian the good man that she saw? And what surprising cargo has Mick found?
