SYNOPSIS:

 

Australia’s legendary punk band, the Saints come together for a one-off reunion gig.  This fly on the wall documentary is a no-holds-barred look at the planning, rehearsals and politics of reuniting Brisbane’s most influential band and celebrating their 30 years of musicianship.  Oh this perfect day indeed.

 

"Rock music in the Seventies was changed by three bands — the Sex Pistols, the Ramones and The Saints".  Bob Geldof

 

In the 1970’s, The Saints busted out of sleepy Brisbane with a phenomenal rise to international attention with punk single and album (I'm) Stranded. Only two albums later (Eternally Yours and Prehistoric Sounds) they split - leaving us with a handful of blood-pumping singles and a thirst for more.

 

They have been asked on countless occasions to reform but they have always refused. Until now.

 

This is a story about rock ‘n’ roll reconciliation. It's about re-uniting two people with thirty years of creative and personal differences… and leaving them in one small room for a week and asking them to pull off the reunion show of the decade.
