The 1970s punk rock movement: New York had the Ramones, London had the Sex Pistols, Australia had the SAINTS. Stranded takes a look at the role four musicians from suburban Brisbane played in the explosion of one of the all time greatest musical movements. Featuring interviews with the members of the band, including its leaders Ed Kuepper and Chris Bailey, as well as the likes of Sir Bob geldof, former Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra and Buzzcocks guitarist Steve Diggle, Stranded examines how the oppresive and conservative government of Joh Bjelke-Peterson in the 1970s helped act as a catalyst for the rise of punk rock in Australia, and how as a result The Saints went on to be one of the most influential bands in the country.

What i thought was going to be a fairly standard music bio-pic turned into a thoughtful and indepth examination of the burgeoning Brisbane punk scene and its relationship to the contemporaneous political environment
