In the film
"Nightmare Swim" is heard in Brother Bear as a representation of the scene in which Kenai falls into a raging river. The score picks up immediately after Kenai is transformed into a bear by the Great Spirits. It carries through Denahi's appearance, during which he spots Kenai's torn clothes and so believes him to have been killed by the bear. The piece becomes more urgent as Kenai falls off the mountain and struggles against a raging river, and ends as he is swept ashore, unconscious.
