Summary, etc.:
In 1970, singer-songwriter Sixto Rodriguez relaesed his debut album to little fanfare in the US. But a bootleg recording found its way into apartheid South Africa and, over the next two decades, he became a phenomenon. The film follows the story of two South African fans who set out to find out what really happened to their hero. Their investigation leads them to a story more extraordinary than any of the existing myths about the artist known as Rodriguez.
