About Scattered People:

A song can take you home is a 60-minute Australian documentary featuring Saha and Mas, two young Iranian musicians. Fleeing their homeland and seeking asylum in Australia, they end up in immigration detention where Mas encounters the Scattered People band – a small group of kindred spirits who play music and create songs with refugees and people seeking asylum. Following their journeys, we observe how music breaks down barriers and gives Saha and Mas purpose, helping to shape their new identities in a new land/life and offering hope for the future.

Including interviews and music from acclaimed musicians including Missy Higgins, John Butler, Michael Franti, Archie Roach, Katie Noonan, Dan Sultan, Harry James Angus, Robbie James (GANGgajang) and Baker Boy, Scattered People also explores how music can help unite, heal and restore our compassion for some of the most vulnerable people on our planet.
