A middle-aged couple (representing New Zealand) are asleep in deck chairs on the beach as the tide comes in around them. Racing to their rescue are two opposing teams - the National Party led by Sidney Holland, whose life-saver is labelled 'private enterprise', and the Labour Party led by Peter Fraser whose life-saver is labelled 'socialism'. At Fraser's feet a small dog runs alongside, wearing a life-saver labelled 'communism'.
