This is a fascinating story of Rodriguez, one of the most famous of the unknown solo singers in the world, a great rock icon of 70’s. Considered the symbol of the generation in some places, with a voice more intimate than Bob Dylan’s, in his own country he struggled to make ends meet.
The film follows two of his fans on an emotional journey to find out what happened to their hero. What they discover is hundredfold more surprising than what they expected.
It’s a documentary that will keep you on the edge of your seat more than most Hollywood blockbusters, still gives me goose bumps whenever I think about it and that exceptional man...

From the Academy Award-winning producer of MAN ON WIRE comes a powerful, unforgettable music mystery.
In the late ‘60s, a musician was discovered in a Detroit bar by two celebrated producers who were struck by his soulful melodies and prophetic lyrics. They recorded an album that they believed was going to secure his reputation as one of the greatest recording artists of his generation. In fact, the album bombed and the singer disappeared into obscurity amid rumors of a gruesome on-stage suicide. But a bootleg recording found its way into apartheid South Africa and, over the next two decades, it became a phenomenon. Two South African fans then set out to find out what really happened to their hero. Their investigation led them to a story more extraordinary than any of the existing myths about the artist known as Rodriguez.
