“This remarkable artifact of Michigan hippie soul by singer-songwriter Sixto Diaz Rodriguez – a lost classic originally issued in 1970 – is what Bob Dylan’s mid-Sixties electric record might have sounded like if he’d made them in Detroit at the dawn of funk." - Rolling Stone

Rodriguez is known as the greatest 70s rock icon that never was. His highly anticipated album bombed and the singer disappeared into obscurity. A bootleg recording found its way into apartheid South Africa and, over the next two decades, it became a phenomenon. This is the story of two intrepid fans who decide to investigate whatever happened to the mysterious rocker.
