Synopsis: Rodriguez was the greatest ’70s US rock icon who never was. His albums were critically well-received, but sales bombed, and he faded away into obscurity among rumours of a gruesome death. However, as fate would have it, a bootleg copy of his record made its way to South Africa, where his music became a phenomenal success. When his second album finally gets released on CD in South Africa, two fans take it as a sign, deciding to look into the mystery of how Rodriguez died and what happened to all of the profits from his album sales.
