Storytime is about two adventurous Kimberley kids who wander deep into the mangroves at sunset, only to find the terrifying campfire stories of the Gooynbooyn Woman may not be myth after-all.

Their concerned parents and grandma start a search when they don't turn up back in camp. They manage to find the exhausted and crying girl, but the search for the boy seems to take forever...
